Grantees Overview

Having impact—making a difference—is the most critical commitment we share with our grantee partners. The degree of impact is the measure by which the Trust makes its decisions, sets it strategy, chooses its partners, and serves the financially needy of North Carolina.

The Trust believes in the full circle of impact:
  • Impacting positively on individual recipients
  • Enhancing self-sustaining and robust organizations
  • Effecting needed change and adding value in the communities we serve
  • Contributing to the broader efforts to improve the human condition


We believe in investing in strategies, projects, organizations and communities that can demonstrate how their efforts create change or how their work contributes to the change they wish to see.
