Who we are

The NCCF is the single statewide community foundation serving North Carolina and has made more than $145 million in grants since its inception in 1988. With more than $270 million in assets, NCCF sustains 1,300 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.
