The North Carolina Community Foundation offers many ways for you to give to the Foundation or existing funds. Giving is fast, easy and secure, with several methods for your convenience.

Review our funds to find the right recipient for your philanthropic objectives, a meaningful tribute, memorial, anniversary or birthday gift.

The North Carolina Community Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Donations are fully tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Giving options

A check or credit card gift is an easy, straightforward way to give. 

Credit Card: NCCF offers fast, easy and secure online giving. Make a credit card gift to a fund, one of our affiliate foundations or NCCF.  

Check: Make checks payable to North Carolina Community Foundation and note the name of the fund you are donating to in the memo line. Mail your check to: North Carolina Community Foundation, 3737 Glenwood Ave., Suite 460, Raleigh, NC 27612. For honorary or memorial gifts, please include a note in your mailing stating who should receive recognition of the gift and their address. 

Electronic Transfer: Please notify us that the electronic transfer has been initiated and note the name of the fund that should receive the donation. Review our transfer instructions

Many gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds and mutual funds result in a charitable deduction for the full market value of the donated asset and minimize capital gains taxes.

Please notify us that the stock transfer has been requested and provide the name of the donor, the name of the security, the number of shares transferred, and the name of the fund you wish to direct the gift. If you have any questions, please contact the Development Officer in your region.

If you are 70½ or older, you may wish to make a Qualified Charitable Distribution from your IRA to NCCF.   

Note: IRS regulations prohibit Qualified Charitable Distributions from being made to donor advised funds. Please contact the development officer in your region if you have questions. 

To initiate a distribution directly from your IRA account to NCCF, contact your IRA custodian and direct them to issue a check in the amount you specify directly to NCCF for the fund you would like to support. Provide your IRA custodian the following information so they can issue a check payable to NCCF:   

  • Legal Name: North Carolina Community Foundation, Inc. 
  • Federal Tax ID:  58-1661700 
  • Address: 3737 Glenwood Avenue, Suite 460, Raleigh, NC 27612  
  • Ask the custodian to put your name in the memo line of the check or include a letter stating your name and address. Doing so will let us know it’s from you and we can provide you an acknowledgment for your records. Your IRA custodian can mail the check directly to NCCF.
