The face of philanthropy in North Carolina is changing. It reflects the shifting demographics, geographies and needs across the state we serve. It’s seen in the growing diversity of the people who make up our Foundation and its expanding, inclusive network of donors, volunteers, leaders and recipients. It begins earlier in life, with young people, even children, embracing the power of giving. And it mirrors the generations of givers as they transition and transfer their gifts and values.

Although the NCCF is most known for our work in the areas of establishing endowments and helping our fundholders make grants, the NCCF believes that the expanded definition of our stewardship should also celebrate and encourage this ever-changing face of philanthropy.

To help accomplish this goal, we’ve established programs to acknowledge and grow philanthropy among women and youth, with an emphasis on women's giving.

NCCF currently partners with eight women's giving initiatives across the state and supports the statewide Women's Fund. We help support youth initiatives in Onslow, Northhampton and Wilkes counties.
