Supporting Thriving Communities
We Support Racial Equity and Justice
To the people experiencing racism and fighting for systems change, we see you, we hear you, and we support you.
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.
