The Department of Anthropology’s “margin of excellence” depends on the generous gifts of our many friends and alumni. Private gifts sustain the Department’s mission of teaching, research, and service. Such gifts help provide the best possible anthropological education for our undergraduate and graduate students, build a lively intellectual community, and support the innovative work of our faculty.

The Department receives tax-deductible donations through the Arts and Sciences Foundation at UNC-Chapel Hill.  Online donations can be completed using the College of Arts and Sciences Foundation’s website.  You can also mail in donations.  Please note in the “memo” section of your check that your gift is intended for the Department of Anthropology. Donations should be sent to the following address:

Buchan House – The Arts and Sciences Foundation

523 E. Franklin Street

Chapel Hill, NC 27514
