The NCCF is the single statewide community foundation serving North Carolina and has made $74 million in grants since its inception in 1988. With more than $171 million in assets, the NCCF sustains 1,200 endowments established to provide long-term support of a broad range of community needs, nonprofit organizations, institutions and scholarships. The NCCF partners with 60 affiliate foundations to provide local resource allocation and community assistance in 67 counties across the state. An important component of the NCCF’s mission is to ensure that rural philanthropy has a voice at local, regional and national levels.
As a leading charitable resource for donors, we partner with a growing number of individuals, families, businesses, corporations and nonprofit organizations to establish endowments or contribute to funds that benefit charitable causes that matter to them, to their communities and throughout North Carolina. The NCCF’s charter also allows us to hold and administer statewide funds.
In addition to helping people with giving, we also focus on implementing innovative and mutually beneficial programs to build and expand the involvement of women and youth.
