The North Carolina Community Foundation (NCCF) was established as a statewide foundation in 1988 by leading philanthropists who envisioned a pool of dedicated endowment funds that would provide for the safety and growth of North Carolina charitable nonprofit institutions and organizations in perpetuity.
The NCCF operates at a grassroots level through a network of affiliates active in 67 counties across the state. Their affiliates promote local solutions to local problems by working within their communities to establish their own unrestricted endowment funds to support a broad range of changing charitable needs in their communities. The North Carolina Community Foundation serve philanthropic donors and supports nonprofit organizations throughout North Carolina. The community grantmaking program funds a broad range of purposes to meet local needs that includes education, human services, basic needs, arts, historical preservation, health, recreation, youth development, environment and animal welfare.
