FFTC Celebrates 60 Years of Inspiring, Empowering and Creating

In January of 1958, 24 of Charlotte’s distinguished leaders met to create the United Community Foundation. Sixty years later, your community foundation – now known as Foundation For The Carolinas – has grown from $3,000 to more than $2 billion in charitable assets, making FFTC one of the largest community foundations in the country.


Removing Barriers to Opportunity

After an extensive study, the Leading On Opportunity Council -- with support from the Robinson Center for Civic Leadership -- is leading the charge on improving economic mobility in our region. Learn how you can get involved.


The Power of Endowment

Years later, Lucille Giles' unrestricted gift continues to touch lives. Organizations and initiatives that have benefited through the years from the gift include Latin American Coalition, Carolina Thread Trail, Charlotte Bilingual Preschool, among many others. Plan your unique legacy.


Convene and Connect at Belk Place

Belk Place will be a collection of venues that foster collaboration, giving and civic activity in our region. The campus will include the Luski-Gorelick Center for Philanthropy and the soon-to-be-renovated Carolina Theatre, among other amenities. Come be inspired.


The Art of Legacy

During their lifetimes, Donald and June Prigmore lovingly assembled an art collection and instilled in their daughter, Chris, a passion for the arts and a commitment to community. With her planned gift, Chris honors her parents' legacy and charts her own philanthropic path.

Whether to create a stronger community, advance a worthy cause or expand opportunities, learn how we can bring your unique vision to life.
