Our History

The North Carolina A&T Real Estate Foundation, Inc. is the successor organization to The North Carolina A&T University Foundation, Inc. The A&T University Foundation, an affiliated entity of the university, is currently being repurposed to focus on acquiring real estate to facilitate the university’s physical expansion through its 2020 Facilities Master Plan.

The A&T University Foundation was established in March of 1946 and reorganized into its current form in 1971. Consistent with its original purpose, the A&T University Foundation has supported the university by raising and managing funds, providing student scholarships, and providing restricted and unrestricted funds to various university units.
