THANKS A MILLION! NORTH STATE GIVING TUESDAY 

Grantmaking 

Our grants are made possible through the contributions of individual donors and nonprofit donor funds managed by the Community Foundation. Some are driven by the charitable interests of our donors, and others come from our unrestricted funds that allow us to operate at our most strategic level, investing in needs as they change over time, advancing long-term strategic goals, and taking on key leadership roles.
