Impact Fund For Emerging Philanthropists
The Impact Fund For Emerging Philanthropists, a special program of Foundation For The Carolinas, is aimed at young philanthropic leaders who want to make a difference in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community. Established in 1999, the Impact Fund for Emerging Philanthropists provides a hands-on experience in philanthropy and volunteerism. Members are guided through a multi-step process of researching organizations, requesting grant proposals and choosing nonprofit agencies for grant awards. Donations to the fund may be applied to a scholarship that will assist participants who may not otherwise have the means to join.
