The Catawba County Capital Campaign Review Committee (CRC) formed in 2008 as a collaborative effort of the local philanthropic community. The CRC process is voluntary; its goal is to support the efforts of our non-profit organizations by reviewing, endorsing, and scheduling major capital fundraising campaigns.

The primary goal is to support the efforts of Catawba County non-profit organizations by reviewing, endorsing and scheduling major capital fundraising campaigns. These are defined as capital, endowment, or debt reduction campaigns during a specific time period, with a goal of raising $500,000 or more.

2018 Deadlines:

  • March 10, 2018
  • November 10, 2018
