Current Gifts


Gifts of cash are tax-deductible and the easiest to value. The Morehead-Cain Scholarship Fund can accept cash gifts by check or credit card through a pledge card, or online.

Champions Monthly Giving Program

The Champions program is comprised of dedicated Morehead-Cain Alumni and friends who are paving the way for future scholars and leaders in Chapel Hill and beyond. Through monthly donations in the amount of their choosing, Champions maximize impact on scholars and the Program year-round.


A gift of marketable securities that have been owned for more than one year provide a donor with two tax benefits: a charitable income tax deduction and a waiver of the capital gains tax. For tax purposes, the value of the gift is the mean market value of the securities on the day of the gift. For donors in higher tax brackets, these tax benefits may reduce the out-of-pocket cost of a gift of securities by half.

Matching Gifts

Matching gifts can double or triple your gift! If you work for a company that matches charitable gifts, please obtain a matching gift form from your personnel office and send it along with your contribution.

Future Gifts


You may make a pledge now and pay over a five-year period.


A bequest is a gift of any amount made to the Morehead-Cain Scholarship Fund in your will. You may include a charitable bequest when you execute a new will or add it to an existing will through a codicil.

Retirement Plan Assets

Retirement plan assets are a great source of retirement income, but not always a good choice for making gifts to children and grandchildren. You may consider using these assets to make a meaningful gift that will support the Morehead-Cain Program well into the future.

Day of Giving

Let’s come together as one community of alumni and friends with one purpose: to provide high-impact, meaningful experiences to the next generation of leaders.
