  • Real estate including personal residences, farms, undeveloped land and commercial properties.
  • Gifts-in-kind of tangible property such as works of art or vehicles.
  • Honorary or memorial gifts named after individuals including scholarships, faculty chairs and professorships.

Spreading a Culture of Philanthropy

Mike Constantino ’84 graduated from NC State before the Poole College of Management was born. Over the years, the recently retired EY partner has become one of the college’s most productive philanthropists. He and his wife, Lori ’84, give generously to Poole College as a way of paying it forward to the school from which EY recruits heavily, and he has persuaded other EY partners to join him.
