The Giannini Society is a prominent group of individual donors who support the School of the Arts annually with a leadership gift of $1,500 or more. These contributions provide a dynamic source of financial support that enables UNCSA to continue its core annual programs and initiatives, including scholarships and guest artists.
Donors at this level enjoy a host of special benefits such as donor recognition and invitations to exclusive events, ranging from behind-the-scenes tours to intimate gatherings hosted by Chancellor Lindsay Bierman at his residence.
