It's not too late, give now to support Niners!
University Recreation (UREC)

Dive into the spirit of generosity and help us take the Niner experience to new heights by supporting the heartbeat of our campus, University Recreation (UREC)!

At UREC, we believe that everyone belongs. We're not just raising funds; we're raising spirits, dreams, and opportunities for our passionate sports clubs. Your support fuels ambition, turning dreams of national competitions and extraordinary achievements into reality.

Our sports clubs are the driving force behind the electric atmosphere at UNC Charlotte. 49er Students crave the taste of victory, and with your help, we can turn those aspirations into W's!

Over the last few years our student groups have multiplied in size, creating a wider array of talents and passions that deserve to shine on a state and national level. Increased use = increased need. While UREC does its best, the truth is we can only cover so much ground. That's where YOU come in – our incredible students, families, and friends who understand the magic of making dreams come true. 

Up for the Challenge? 

Battle of the Sports Clubs! Each of the TOP 3 club teams to secure the most gifts during Niner Nation Gives will unlock a $349 prize from University Advancement leaders Beth Crigler, Jodi Kaplan, and Betty Doster. Give now to move your team up the leaderboard!

Here's your playbook for making a difference:

1.) Support a Club Team, Program, or Fund that means the most to you.

Choose the spark that ignites your passion and be the champion they deserve.

2.) Get 2 friends (or family members) to support the same fund.

Let's amplify our impact together!

3.) Share on social media how that team, program, or fund has impacted your experience as a 49er directly.

Let your networks know the magic that happens when we come together as Forty Niners!

Join the movement, be a game-changer, and let's make this Day of Giving legendary. Together, we'll show that the power of giving knows no bounds. Go Niners!
