From Our Community

Our partnership with CCCF is invaluable. We truly appreciate and welcome their guidance in assisting with our competitive grants. Together, we are meeting the needs of our community and making the Midlands a better place to live.

Senior Philanthropy Coordinator for Aflac Group Insurance

The Community Foundation has helped us so much with the money-related questions we've had, with handling the 501(c)3 concerns and also the tax side of things. We needed their expertise, and they've helped us immensely.

There are so many charities that we don't know about out there, and the Foundation is the perfect connector. They help us connect with organizations we might otherwise overlook.

We're learning from others but also want to be an example, and our charitable fund is part of that. A fund with the Community Foundation gives you options to smooth out your future giving and gives you options to look at the consequences of taxes, which I think is really important for small business people.

Working with Central Carolina Community Foundation, we have been able to reach further into the community with our fundraising efforts and connect with corporations who know of the Community Foundation.
