Foundation For The Carolinas

Foundation For The Carolinas inspires philanthropy and empowers individuals to create a better community. 
We are your community foundation. 


Fundraising for the Arts

With local cultural nonprofits devastated by lost revenues due to the effects of the pandemic, FFTC was called to lead a campaign to raise $18 million from the private sector to match $18 million in City of Charlotte funding. Thanks to generous donors, the goal was exceeded, with $20 million raised for local arts and science groups.
