NCCF supports several giving circles across the state of North Carolina. Primarily focused on women’s giving, NCCF’s giving circles support charitable organizations serving women, children and families. These programs leverage local community networks and the power of collective giving.
Through several regional women’s giving groups and our statewide women’s fund, NCCF partners with women from across North Carolina to help marshal their philanthropic interests and resources in focused, purposeful and strategic ways.
Grant decisions are recommended by the giving circle’s members. We’re committed to the local knowledge and expertise that our members bring to responding to the needs of the community through their grantmaking.
