Alumni Contributions

We appreciate the contributions of our alumni to our department enrichment accounts, whether the MPA Enrichment Fund, or the Political Science Enrichment Fund. We depend on these funds for student travel to conferences, lunch meetings with our advisory boards, the MPA alumni reunion, and receptions for campus speakers. Recent contributions allowed us to send MPA students to the NC City/County Managers Association annual conference, host the Congress to Campus program in March 2007, and partially fund the Washington Summer Study Session.

If you are interested in contributing to the department, please designate your gift for the Political Science Enrichment Fund or MPA Enrichment Fund during UNCG’s annual campaign, or send a check directly to:

UNCG Advancement Services, 
P.O. Box 26170, 
Greensboro, NC 27402-6170

Please mark your gift for either the MPA Enrichment Fund or the Political Science Enrichment Fund.

Or donate online.
