Center for Personal Philanthropy

The needs of our clients are as diverse as the causes they care about. To help individuals and families achieve their personal charitable giving goals, Foundation For The Carolinas offers a broad range of services through its Center for Personal Philanthropy. Philanthropic experts at the Center help individuals and families, as well as supporting foundations and family foundations, manage their giving to generate the greatest possible impact.
As the community foundation for this region, we share your commitment to building healthy communities and promoting the responsible stewardship of resources. Whether you choose to open a gift fund that can create an immediate impact in the community, create a permanent endowment to address an ongoing need, or plan a gift to create a legacy for your community, the Foundation can help make your charitable giving easy and effective.

Distinct service levels are available based on average annual gift fund balance. Donors opening funds between $10,000 and $1.9 million will benefit from the Center’s value, select and comprehensive service levels. Donors opening funds starting at $2 million will benefit from the custom service level.
