Tate Family Gift Commitment Establishes Scholarships

Tuesday, November 09, 2021

Dr. Jimmy Tate ’99, ’01M, ’19M, current member of the UNCW Board of Trustees, and his sister, Dr. Mary Lisa Robinson, have made a $100,000 gift commitment to establish scholarships in memory of their brother, Harvey Tate Jr.

The siblings’ generous contribution will create scholarships to support student-athletes as well as students with a farming and/or environmental background interested in pursuing a degree offered by the Cameron School of Business. The gift will count towards the university’s current comprehensive campaign, Like No Other: The Campaign for UNCW. Student support has been a key initiative of the campaign, with nearly $50 million being raised in this area. Encouraging alumni participation is another goal of the ongoing campaign.
