Ensure Ongoing Community Impact
Community foundations – like Foundation For The Carolinas – were created by and for the people of a community, to ensure ongoing support for local needs.
As time passes, your community’s most compelling issues will evolve. By leaving an unrestricted gift to an FFTC Community Impact Fund, you can entrust FFTC to address unexpected, evolving community needs and opportunities, ensuring permanent, strategic support for the causes you most value, even as needs and organizations change.
