Out of an abundance of caution, care and compassion for our community, the North Carolina Community Foundation is closing our Raleigh headquarters office to the public and shifting our statewide staff to remote work, beginning Friday, March 13.
First and foremost, our primary concern is for the safety, health and wellness of our community, customers, stakeholders and staff. We are actively following the guidance issued by the North Carolina Department of Health & Human Services.
Our team is reaching out to those with whom we currently have meetings scheduled with in order to plan accordingly. Affiliate board members scheduled to attend a meeting in their community in the next six weeks should expect to hear from their Community Leadership Officer and are invited to reach out to them.
During this challenging time, we lift up our nonprofit partners. We acknowledge the people and organizations working on the front lines of the outbreak.
This is an especially difficult time for those without work-from-home options, health insurance, paid sick leave or the luxury of savings to weather a hard stretch. These are the people many of your nonprofit partners serve daily, and their work is critical right now.
We encourage you to consider how you might support these organizations as they focus on the work at hand.
Please know that this decision was reached by our leadership following the advice and direction our state’s public health leaders have provided for all during the state of emergency.
We encourage our friends and neighbors to continue championing our community throughout the year, no matter the impact of this crisis.
Thank you for being part of our mission to inspire philanthropy across North Carolina.
