Your Community Foundation

Our Mission

Foundation For The Carolinas inspires philanthropy and empowers individuals to create a better community.

About Us

Foundation For The Carolinas serves as a catalyst for philanthropic activity in our 13-county region and is a driver for major civic efforts. We offer innovative solutions that help individuals, nonprofits and companies bring their charitable visions to life.

Established in 1958, we are a civic leader and philanthropic partner. With nearly $4 billion in charitable assets across more than 2,700 charitable funds established by families, nonprofits and businesses, we are one of the largest community foundations in the U.S. FFTC supports personal and corporate philanthropy through a range of innovative fund and giving options. We also drive nonprofit sustainability through endowment management, customized solutions and grantmaking.

Our flagship program, the Robinson Center for Civic Leadership, is actively addressing the community’s most pressing challenges and greatest opportunities, from economic opportunity to neighborhood revitalization to education and more.

FFTC is headquartered in the Luski-Gorelick Center for Philanthropy. With art throughout and multiple conference rooms available at no charge to area nonprofits, our home serves as a civic hub for our community.
