A Bold Vision for an Equitable Charlotte
The Mayor's Racial Equity Initiative envisions Charlotte setting the standard for achieving racial equity, social justice, economic opportunity and upward mobility through transformational public-private partnerships.
Inspired by this initiative, Wells Fargo announced its Open for Business grant program to support small businesses.
Robinson Center for Civic Leadership
As FFTC’s flagship program, the Robinson Center for Civic Leadership convenes the community to address our greatest challenges. From affordable housing to economic opportunity to the environment, and more, since its inception, RCCL has leveraged nearly $10 million in funding to generate an impact of more than $380 million in our community.
Harnessing the Power of Black Philanthropy
The African American Community Foundation is now Foundation For Black Philanthropy.
FFBP is a collective power to celebrate and uplift the long tradition of Black giving in our community.
Focus on Storytelling
Visit FOCUS, the Foundation's new storytelling website, where we highlight donors, initiatives and organizations working to improve our region. The new site features inspiring stories alongside tips and insights for how to make an even bigger impact.
Fundraising for Arts and Culture
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 $23 million raised for local arts and culture groups.

For three decades, Time Out Youth has been a safe haven for LGBTQ youth.
