Our ELT works closely with our leadership team to ensure we continue forward in our support for diversity, inclusion and equity.<\/p>\r\n<p>We were also honored to welcome the Tip the Scales NC Fund to our family of funds last year. This endowment was created by a group of social justice minded friends who were looking for a way to support anti-racist nonprofit programs across the state following the last summer&rsquo;s national uprisings. The endowment supports organizations in North Carolina that combat racial and social inequities in the classroom, workforce, community, justice system and beyond. <a href=\"\/news\/tip-the-scales-nc-fund-created-to-support-nonprofit-programs-combating-racial-and-social-inequities-across-the-state\">You can read more about this groundbreaking fund here.<\/a><\/p>","image_2":"https:\/\/nmcdn.io\/e186d21f8c7946a19faed23c3da2f0da\/7868d48393ef4e3bb7bca8cdf7bc2f20\/files\/students.jpeg","caption_2":"Tip the Scales NC","content_3":"<p class=\"impactGrid_contentRight\">We were also inspired by another group of friends, a club of high school students, who are helping to lead our community into a more actively anti-racist future. Students established a fund to support the creation of a monument to North Carolina&rsquo;s victims of lynching. The students, all members of their school&rsquo;s Freedom Struggle Committee, are committed to developing a permanent public acknowledgement to the many victims of lynching in the state. <a href=\"\/news\/raleigh-high-school-students-establish-fund-to-support-creation-of-monument-to-north-carolina-victims-of-lynching\">You can read more about how what began as a class project has evolved into a commitment to recognizing the truths about our state&rsquo;s history here.<\/a><\/p>\r\n<p>We were also proud to more deeply weave an emphasis on equity and justice into our NCCF funds in 2020. In addition to the fundamental focus on under-resourced communities present within the foundation of the NC Healing Communities Fund, we furthered this commitment through our disaster recovery work.<\/p>\r\n<p class=\"impactGrid_contentLeft\">We were deeply honored to create a $250,000 funding opportunity through the North Carolina Inclusive Disaster Recovery Network to support long-term disaster recovery through nonprofit organizations that are led by or focus long-term recovery efforts on minority communities, people of color and other underserved populations in the area. These grant decisions were made by the members of the NCIDR, not NCCF staff or board members, positioning the funding to be awarded through an entirely participatory model where funding decisions are made by members of the communities being funded. <a href=\"\/news\/nccf-supports-equitable-model-for-hurricane-response-through-nc-inclusive-disaster-recovery-network\">You can read more about our support for an equitable model of hurricane response here.<\/a><\/p>","image_3":"https:\/\/nmcdn.io\/e186d21f8c7946a19faed23c3da2f0da\/7868d48393ef4e3bb7bca8cdf7bc2f20\/files\/Raleigh-high-school-students-establish-fund-to-support-creation-of-monument-to-North-Carolina-victims-of-lynching.jpg","caption_3":"Members of the Raleigh Charter High School Freedom Struggle Committee"},"masthead":{"title":"","counties":"","affiliate_logo":"","sub_text":"","background_image":"","caption":""},"latest_blog":{"post":""},"social_sharing":{"share_image":""}},"inMenu":false,"publishedAt":1618881794,"orderChildrenBy":"ordinal","enableComments":false,"permission":"read","visibleTo":"Everyone","id":"8fcc54418e544c45a3dd9985c68ed42f","parent":"7af134df28f14a8bb7312806cb292367","node":77321,"created":1618881794,"modified":1620140210,"fresh":1,"type":"page","children":{},"relations":{"custom-fields":[{"name":"Impact Advancing","slug":"impact_advancing","fields":[{"label":"Title","name":"title","instructions":"","defaultValue":"","required":false,"min":0,"max":0,"type":"text"},{"label":"Content","name":"content_1","instructions":"","required":false,"type":"richtext"},{"label":"Image","name":"image_1","instructions":"","required":false,"pattern":"","type":"file"},{"label":"Image Caption","name":"caption_1","instructions":"","defaultValue":"","required":false,"min":0,"max":0,"type":"text"},{"label":"Content","name":"content_2","instructions":"","required":false,"type":"richtext"},{"label":"Image","name":"image_2","instructions":"","required":false,"pattern":"","type":"file"},{"label":"Image Caption","name":"caption_2","instructions":"","defaultValue":"","required":false,"min":0,"max":0,"type":"text"},{"label":"Content","name":"content_3","instructions":"","required":false,"type":"richtext"},{"label":"Image","name":"image_3","instructions":"","required":false,"pattern":"","type":"file"},{"label":"Image Caption","name":"caption_3","instructions":"","defaultValue":"","required":false,"min":0,"max":0,"type":"text"}],"appliesToSelf":true,"depth":99,"ordinal":4,"id":"e3a554e506504515acaa6606e13a64c5","parent":"f51678b855144e34bd29e4cf0711a191","node":77288,"created":1618881883,"modified":1620132428,"fresh":1,"type":"07e826223fb94fe3bb95d0fa56c48590","children":{}}]}}
