UNCG’s #BelieveInTheG giving campaign saw record levels of participation this year, with more than 1,100 Spartans raising $111,467 in just 48 hours.

Funds raised will support student scholarships, innovation within academic departments and student success programs such as the Career Services Center and University Speaking Center.

“The results of this year’s #BelieveInTheG reiterate the power of our community,” said Bob Amico, director of annual giving. “When we unite around an important mission, we are unstoppable. We’re tremendously grateful for the 1,130 individual contributors who fought late into the night to make this year a success.”

In addition to making financial gifts, Spartans from across the country shared their #BelieveInTheG stories on social media. Check out some of our favorite posts below.
