CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — With UNC-Chapel Hill more than halfway to its $1.8 billion capital campaign goal, the school’s chief fundraiser is moving from the development office downtown to South Building, the administration building that houses Chancellor James Moeser.
“I’m just moving over there to be closer to the chancellor,” says Matt Kupec, vice chancellor for university relations. “I ought to be one of the people he has around him in South Building.”
The drive has raised $985 million in cash and pledges, including $23 million in January, $35 million in February, $14 million in March, and $15 million in April.
Kupec will hire a senior associate vice chancellor for development, or chief lieutenant, in the wake of some job changes.
Margie Crowell, associate vice chancellor for development, has been named associate vice chancellor for special campaigns, and Priscilla Bratcher, director of principal gifts, resigned to become director of development/U.S. for the Washington, D.C., office of the Royal Shakespeare Co. in Stratford-upon-Avon, England.
