Philanthropic Services

We believe philanthropy is engaging and values-driven, so we help individuals, families, and groups examine their values so they can define and achieve their charitable goals.

Fund Management

At the Charlotte Community Foundation our mission is “ Connecting People Who Care with Causes that Matter”. Through the generosity of our donors, we are able to support the programmatic work of local 501c3 organizations. We provide personalized hands-on  services that ensure your dollars achieve maximum impact no matter where you choose to give wither now or into the future.

Start Your Fund

Establishing your own fund at the Charlotte Community Foundation is an easy way to ensure that your charitable goals are met — almost as if you’re creating your own private foundation, though without all the administrative hassles.

Starting a fund does not require great wealth but does offer numerous benefits:

  • Your giving is managed for you
  • Anonymity if you choose
  • Immediate tax benefits and your fund grows tax-free
  • Ongoing support to your favorite organizations
  • You choose how, when and how much to give

When you choose to invest in the future, you want to work with an organization that knows the community. Charlotte Community Foundation leaders — all invested in the community themselves — are here to help you ensure that your charitable giving will achieve maximum results and be used wisely. We can offer our expertise to help you develop your plan for how your funds are distributed through a Donor Advised Fund or you can rely on us to address the community’s most pressing challenges of the day through our Community Fund. Whatever your goals, we’re sure there’s a fund model for you.
