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.
Current Initiative: Educated & Empowered Youth
Since March, students of all ages in our community have faced unprecedented challenges and disruption to their education. The learning loss gap and technological divide continues to grow, and will likely affect students for years to come. We know that our region's students need support now and in the years to come - will you help us sustain our youth-focused programming to ensure that we can meet those needs?
At Triangle Community Foundation, our new Education & Youth Impact Area is focused on educating and empowering our next generation of leaders. We do this through grants to youth-serving nonprofits, scholarships for postsecondary education, financial assistance for scholarship recipients for non-tuition costs, and hosting a youth intern to build job skills and capacity. We’re excited about the impact we are making now and in the future - but we need your help to do so.
The Foundation has made significant investments to support this impact area in the coming year, and your support will allow us to fund this important work in the future, while granting us the flexibility to apply funds to the areas of greatest need, which will continue to emerge during this pandemic and beyond.
We have set a goal to raise an additional $50,000 from donors by 12/31, and we hope you will help!
A gift to our Education & Youth Impact Area through our Giving Together program will support our future leaders as they finish their current educational track, access and complete college, and grow in to the confident, involved community members we already know they can be.
We'd love to chat. Contact Sarah Battersby at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
