Supporting Thriving Communities

Where you're born shouldn't impact life's outcomes.

But, it does in many parts of North Carolina. Access to quality health care, education, and economic opportunities vary by neighborhood and by county. We believe this is unacceptable.

The Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust works locally and statewide to improve equitable access to opportunity.

We focus our grantmaking on achieving long-term, sustainable outcomes to support thriving communities and thriving residents. Listening to community, taking actions to foster equity, and shifting systems are integral to all we do.
