Support Your Community

Strengthen Our Region

Invest In Your Community

Foundation For The Carolinas serves as the home for philanthropic activity in our 13-county region. We lead major civic efforts and offer innovative solutions that help individuals, nonprofits and companies bring their charitable visions to life. FFTC also supports the work of our regional affiliates - which are led by local boards of trustees - by engaging local leaders, managing endowments and providing grantmaking services.

Explore the ways you can support our work today and in the future.

Give Collaboratively

Through our collective giving programs, you can pool your donations with others who share your interests, research community needs and decide as a group where to make grants.

You can also strengthen nonprofits and improve lives by supporting FFTC's other special giving programs.

Special Giving Programs

Donate to a Regional Affiliate

Contribute to an existing endowment established for the benefit of one of FFTC’s 13 regional county affiliates. Grants from regional affiliate endowments support needs in a particular county and are overseen by a board of local leaders.
