The Rams Club
Established in 1938, The Rams Club was chartered with the primary purpose of providing scholarship assistance to the University of North Carolina. To this day, that goal remains the central focus of The Rams Club. Through the annual fund and scholarship endowments Rams Club members help fund scholarships for 450 student-athletes. Supporting the scholarship gap is an aggressive goal, but one our members have accomplished every year.
In addition to scholarships, The Rams Club gifts support sports endowments as well as capital projects. The collective generosity of all Rams Club members makes a significant impact, allowing Tar Heel student-athletes to pursue success in competition and in the classroom. Below are different ways in which Rams Club members support your Carolina student-athletes.

The Rams Club has over 16,000 members who contribute to the Annual Fund. Your annual donation as a member of The Rams Club is vital to helping to cover the immediate funding needs of Carolina Athletics particularly the cost of providing 450 scholarships annually.
Giving to the Scholarship Endoment fund allows donors to provide critical, long-term support for Carolina's athletic scholarship program. The cost of education for more than 450+ scholarship student-athletes is nearly $16.5 million. Increasing the trust through endowed scholarships is a primary goal of The Rams Club. Endowing a scholarship is $500,000. Its annual yield helps cover the scholarships provided by Carolina Athletics.
Each of Carolina's sports programs has its own endowment which members can contribute toward in addition to their annual fund donation. Sport endowments are integral to Carolina's commitment to a broad-based athletic program and allow each program to meet its specific needs. Among many things, coaches use these funds to enhance recruiting, team travel and operational expenses.
