The NCCF Endowment

The North Carolina Community Foundation was founded in 1988, with the vision of providing rural North Carolina with the same philanthropic services as larger communities.

We inspire North Carolinians to make lasting and meaningful contributions to their community. As the trusted philanthropic partner to hundreds of North Carolinians, we have grown tremendously through their generosity in our 35 years. NCCF now sustains 1,200 charitable funds and has administered over $243 million in grants and scholarships.

We believe in the power of permanent philanthropy to strengthen our communities and people. Accessing philanthropic resources should not be determined by where you live. NCCF is dedicated to rural North Carolina and is proud to serve more than 60 counties through our network of fundholders, affiliate foundations and donors.

What makes NCCF unique?

  • Just as North Carolina is unique, so is NCCF. We are one of only a handful of statewide community foundations, and our dedication to rural philanthropy — combined with our extensive footprint of 53 affiliate foundations covering 60 counties — sets us apart.
  • Each affiliate is led by a local volunteer advisory board that understands their community’s unique needs and works with NCCF staff to grow their philanthropic funds in support of important causes in their community.
  • Our affiliates benefit from being part of this large network. Our network provides support for all.
