Be a Pack Leader

What are Pack Leaders?

Pack Leaders are enthusiastic alumni, family and friends of NC State who want to ignite that passion for our university in others. By signing up to be a Pack Leader, you receive your very own personalized giving link to share with your networks. We provide social media templates and suggestions for reaching out to your friends and family, simplifying the process of asking people to join you in giving.

The Pack Leader program allows you to maximize your impact on NC State students, faculty and the wider community.


All Pack Leaders are asked to compete in the You+2 Challenge. To check this challenge off your list, just make a gift and get at least two additional donors to give through your link before the end of Day of Giving. If you successfully complete this challenge, we have some exclusive swag just for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I ask people to give through my link?

The most effective way to get people excited about giving is to lead by example. You can inspire others to make their gift by sharing your own NC State story and the reason why you decided to support your favorite area at the university.

After you sign up, our staff will provide you with social media prompts and other templates to make asking for a gift simple. This is a great place to start writing the messages you’ll share with your networks.

I don’t have social media. Can I still be a Pack Leader?

Yes! You can ask people to join you via text message, email and even phone calls. We provide message templates for you to personalize and adapt no matter what medium you choose.

How much work is it?

Not much at all! Our staff has done the heavy lifting by creating a variety of templates for you to personalize however you prefer. You can also choose how frequently you communicate about Day of Giving. We recommend posting or otherwise reaching out the day before and a couple of times on the day, but the final call is yours, based solely on your availability and preference.

On Day of Giving, if I have questions throughout the day, who do I contact?
