Dear Camp Family, 

What an amazing 49 hours it has been with #NinerNationGives! We’re still gathering the results, but as of now we have 54 donors, totaling $2,024 raised. Thank you for coming together and supporting our programs. This means we have unlocked Associate Provost, Asher Haines' #NinerNationGives challenge, resulting in an additional $500 donation!! It took a Nation to accomplish all that we did, and we have you to thank for that. 

Thank you again for your support and Niner spirit!

With Niner Pride,

Gratitude and Impact: Your Support Makes a Difference!

November 29, 2023

Dear Camp Family, 

As we reflect on the incredible impact of our recent campaign, we are overwhelmed with gratitude for donors like you who share our vision for equal educational opportunities for all children. Your generosity has played a pivotal role in making a real difference in the lives of those who need it most. At Camps on Campus, we believe that every child, irrespective of their financial background, deserves a chance to thrive academically. Your support has helped us take significant strides towards this goal, and we're excited to share the progress we've made together.

To date, we've raised an impressive $4,752, providing 15 deserving children with the opportunity to enjoy a week's camp free of cost. Your contribution has also funded each of their meal plans for the week, ensuring that families can focus on learning and growth without the burden of meal costs. Your commitment to our cause has empowered us to create a positive and enriching environment for these children, where they can experience constructive learning, build essential mentor relationships, and enjoy the many benefits of being part of UNC Charlotte's vibrant community.

While our active campaign may have concluded, your ongoing support remains invaluable. We understand that commitments and priorities vary, and we genuinely appreciate any contribution, regardless of the timing. Our long-term goal is to establish an endowed fund that will sustain our mission for years to come, and with supporters like you by our side, we are confident in achieving this vision.

Once again, thank you for making a difference in the lives of these children. Your compassion and generosity are shaping a brighter future for our community, one child at a time. We look forward to keeping you updated on our progress and hope to continue this journey together.

With heartfelt thanks,

Taylor Faulkner & Krystle Kunnathur

Giving Tuesday Meal Plan Challenge

November 20, 2023

As we celebrate the 24th anniversary of Camps on Campus at UNC Charlotte, we're excited to introduce you to a special initiative that allows you to make a meaningful impact in the lives of young campers.

Our #GivingTuesday Meal Plan Challenge will run from 11/20-11/28

  • Our goal is to have 24 donors, symbolizing our 24th year of camping
  • Each donor's gift of $49 goes beyond a Meal Plan Fee—it's an investment in relieving the burden of meal costs

At UNC Charlotte’s Youth Programs, our mission extends beyond financial assistance for summer camp. We are dedicated to providing weekly meal plans for children who will be joining Camps on Campus. Your support will directly contribute to this mission, fostering an environment where every camper can thrive.

Thank you for considering this opportunity to make a difference. Together, we can ensure that every child at Camps on Campus receives the nourishment they need for a summer filled with growth, laughter, and new friendships.

Warm regards,

The Youth Programs Team
