The NCCF is the single statewide community foundation serving North Carolina and has made $116 million in grants since its inception in 1988. With more than $222 million in assets, 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 a network of affiliate foundations to provide local resource allocation and community assistance across the state. An important component of 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 programs to build on the already strong involvement of women.
