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.


A Place to Be Themselves

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