Looking Back. Working Forward.
2022 marked the 75th anniversary of the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust. To change the system, we need to start with ourselves.
The Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust works locally and across North Carolina to improve equitable access to opportunity.
We focus our grantmaking on achieving long-term, sustainable outcomes to support thriving communities and empower residents. Listening to community, taking actions to foster equity, and shifting systems are integral to all we do.
Our Program Areas

We support health solutions that lead to increased access to care and equitable health outcomes in areas with great need across the state.
