Learn about the Foundation

Triangle Community Foundation is building a stronger Triangle for all. By working with dedicated donors and strong nonprofits, we are able to guide gifts in a strategic way to fill in gaps, reduce inequities, and solve the region’s most pressing challenges. We work tirelessly in the Triangle region of North Carolina to help build a more vibrant community for everyone. By taking a broad view, we are uniquely positioned to identify gaps, support the most important needs, and shape a brighter future for generations to come.

As we emerge and still feel the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and racial injustice across our country, we need to help each other even more. We are committed to continued listening to the needs of our community, learning (and unlearning) with our donors and partners, and responding quickly to pressing needs as they arise. We hope you'll join us.

Fund for the Triangle provides direct support for the Foundation’s interconnected impact areas, ensuring we are able to partner with strong nonprofits that are the cornerstone of our community’s health. This permanent community-based fund allows us the flexibility to be nimble so we are able to respond quickly to pressing needs now and for generations to come. To understand how we can mobilize Fund for the Triangle, we encourage you to read more about how we did so with our COVID-19 Recovery efforts.

Last year, we granted nearly $1.7M through Fund for the Triangle to more than 100 strong nonprofits working across our impact areas!
