Our Giving Together program increases impact by pooling Foundation and donor resources to support strong organizations and collaborations making a difference in our community. By encouraging collective giving with our generous fundholders for critical issues, we can better support a strong ecosystem of nonprofit organizations in the Triangle. The nonprofit partners highlighted through Giving Together are doing critical work in our community helping people in need, and we believe in them.
