We are grateful for you

On behalf of the Community Leadership Team at NCCF, I wanted to take a moment to express our heartfelt gratitude for your partnership, your dedicated passion for our communities and your service on your affiliate foundation board.  

It’s a wonderful time for us to reflect on all that we have accomplished working in partnership to make our communities and state stronger. Together we have accomplished a lot this year! 

Thank you for attending and engaging in affiliate board meetings; welcoming new board members; joining us for Leadership Exchange; traveling to Raleigh for our affiliate forum; reviewing your Community Needs Assessment; participating in our Racial Equity Institute Groundwater webinar; making important grant decisions; taking part in Chairman’s Challenge, giving our affiliate marketing toolbox a try; and so much more.  

As we wrap up 2023, we are excited to meet and work with new board members and affiliate leaders. We have been hard at work planning the 2024 new board members’ orientation program and are looking forward to hosting our 2024 affiliate presidents for a virtual opportunity in January, Orientation & Leading Your Affiliate Through the Criteria for Success.                 

Finally, we hope you will join us in sending thanks to our NCCF Affiliate Impact Committee members who have served not only on their affiliate foundation boards but as leaders of our affiliate network. Their insight and work this year will guide us for years to come.
