2019 is winding down, but donors still have time to make a year-end gift to the College of Sciences.

Please read the information below to make your 2019 year-end gift. Most NC State offices will be closed for winter break during the week of Dec. 23, though the university’s Advancement Services office will be on-call Dec. 26-27 and open during normal business hours Dec. 30-31.


The fastest way to make a year-end gift is with a credit card at Online gifts must be completed by 11:59 p.m. EST on December 31.


The university’s Advancement Services office will have staff on call over the holidays to speak with donors who want to give by credit card over the phone.
