Giving at NCCF

Help your clients experience the joy of giving.

By giving with NCCF, your clients are connecting to a powerful network of generous North Carolinians who are building a strong and vibrant future for our great state.

When your client is considering giving with NCCF, they will meet with a member of the Foundation’s experienced team that supports their local community. We make it a priority to understand your client’s goals, needs, and charitable vision, while holding donor confidentiality and your relationship with the client in high regard.  While many donors have a clear idea of the charitable impact they’d like to have, others may not.  NCCF meets your client where they are, tailoring the conversation and planning appropriately.
