She serves nonprofits, foundation board members, and our statewide network of fundholders in distribution of funds to support the needs of the community. Her experience includes managing grant initiatives for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, and she brings critical and creative thinking, proficiency and a strong work ethic to NCCF. She looks forward to contributing to our support of philanthropy across the state.

Remy joins our operations team following working with our finance team for several months, where she contributed to our gift entry and donor support functions. She has over twelve years of office administration and project management experience, provides exceptional customer service and gives her time and attention to NC and beyond through community service and volunteer activities.

Meredith Bell

Prior to joining the Foundation, Meredith was the campaign group director with Capital Development Services, where she provided professional fundraising services and performed donor prospect research.  Additionally, she led volunteer efforts for the United Way of Pitt County as their volunteer center director.
