Name a Butterfly at UNC Children’s!

You can honor a child, loved one or friend at the UNC Children’s Smith Family Butterfly Canopy, located on the seventh floor of the N.C. Children’s Hospital.

Make a gift of either $250 or $1,000 to UNC Children’s and you will receive a personalized butterfly placed in the Smith Family Butterfly Canopy. Your gift will support patients and families at UNC Children’s.


Your gifts can help fund the next breakthroughs at UNC.

Personalize your butterfly with your name, your family’s name or in honor or memory of someone who has touched your life.


Butterflies come in two sizes:

Large: 16” wide by 14” tall $1000 per butterfly (100% tax deductible)

Small: 11” wide by 8.5” tall $250 per butterfly (100% tax deductible)

Please note there is a 70-character limit, including spaces.
