Season of giving

The end of the year is busy for all of us, especially this year. Year-end projects, goal setting for the new year and sharing the holiday season with family and friends make our time precious.

This time is also an opportunity to reflect on giving back and to consider charitable contributions to the nonprofit organizations and causes that make our communities and the world a better place.

NCCF offers several fund options to meet your philanthropic needs, such as donor advised funds, scholarships, and field of interest funds. Please contact our development team to get started.

At the North Carolina Community Foundation, we’re poised to assist with your year-end giving and granting. Please find important information, instructions and deadlines below:
