What we’re thankful for.


November is a time to focus on philanthropy.

During this special month filled with holiday spirit, we are taking the time to say thank you and reflect on several important celebrations designed to spotlight the vital work of nonprofits and philanthropy.

November is Nonprofit Awareness Month and contains both Community Foundation Week (Nov. 12 – Nov. 18) and National Philanthropy Day (Nov. 15). All of these calls to reflect and raise awareness highlight the most important points of what we do at the North Carolina Community Foundation.

We’re so thankful to be a member of (and partner with) the nonprofit community throughout North Carolina, the community foundation sector across the United States and to hold the banner of supporting and inspiring philanthropy everywhere. These causes have a profound impact on our state.

North Carolina Community Foundation

NCCF reached several milestones this year, surpassing $237 million in assets and $101 million in grantmaking. We proudly serve 67 North Carolina counties through 60 affiliate community foundations.

For us, November is also the season for our annual fundraising campaign to benefit local grantmaking among our community affiliate foundations. Returning for the third consecutive year, the Chairman’s Challenge has raised more than $500,000 in support of nonprofit programs that benefit local communities throughout our state. We invite you to join us in supporting your local community. Find out more here.
