We are calling it the Believe In The G Giving Challenge,” says Emily Rector, director of UNCG Annual Giving.

The campaign is targeting those donors who favor social media. The hashtag is #BelieveInTheG. Once you make a donation at believeintheg.com, you’re sent access to a meme generator where you can create a Spiro meme.

This is a first time the campaign has been a two-day event. And there’s an added incentive in reaching the goal.

“We have two challenge donors who will together give $75,000 if we reach 480 donors,” says Rector.

This event will also raise awareness about how gifts from donors help shape the student experience, according to Sarah Kathryn Coley, associate director of development in Annual Giving. For example, they are using social media to show how donations are responsible for beloved sites on campus, such as the Minerva statue and the Vacc Bell Tower.

Make a donation of any size or find out details at www.believeintheg.com.
