Recently bestowed with Carolina’s premier honor – the Priceless Gem – Head Coach Ron Miller has provided the leadership and guidance to nearly a thousand Tar Heel fencers over the past 50 years. The Ron Miller Legacy Campaign is an effort to celebrate Coach Miller’s devotion to Carolina Fencing, and to help secure the future of the program by raising $2 million in endowed funds to be used exclusively to support the fencing program.
This campaign is the first of its kind for the Carolina Fencing program. Even as the program continues to be one of the leading fencing programs nationally, greater support is needed to solidify future successes. Carolina’s peers – other perennially top 10-ranked NCAA Fencing programs – have outpaced our program’s resources. Supporting Carolina Fencing through donations to a Fencing-specific endowment will help ensure future success.
The generally accepted forecast for endowment distributions is 5% annually. Outlined below are examples that demonstrate the annual impact that your gifts can have for current and future Carolina Fencers.
In addition to providing critical, long-lasting and flexible support, the successful completion of this campaign will also result in the honorary re-naming of Fencing’s Operating Endowment to The Ronald C. Miller Fencing Operating Endowment.
Most importantly, your endowed support will create flexible, long-lasting support to provide necessary resources for travel, assistant coach salaries and facility upgrades.
