The North Carolina Community Foundation and local affiliate foundations, the Northern Albemarle Community Foundation and the Chowan Community Funds Foundation, hosted a Pop-Up Philanthropy event recently in Elizabeth City.
The event was held at the Arts of the Albemarle’s Maguire Theater and featured discussion of opportunities for collaboration and increased local philanthropic impact. On hand to meet with local philanthropists, professional advisors and nonprofit leaders were NCCF senior staff and local and statewide board members.
“Pop Up provided us with a wonderful opportunity to discuss resources the community foundation provides to the Albemarle area,” said Tolle Whiteside. “We see a lot of interest in funding important nonprofit programs that impact local needs and how individuals, organizations and businesses can create permanent endowment funds that will serve as permanent resources in these local communities forever.”
