What We Are Doing

We focus direct funding, research, and convenings in these areas: the arts, community development, the environment and youth literacy. These focus area programs are made possible by our family of generous donors: those who have entrusted us with permanent funds that benefit the Triangle, and those who contribute to the Fund for the Triangle annually.

Why We Are Doing It

We envision a caring community where everyone has the opportunity to thrive. We strongly believe that these focus areas are truly interconnected, and that by working together to bring awareness and resources to the nonprofits doing critical work, we can change the face of the future for our region. 

How We Are Doing It

Our goal is to build a strong and innovative ecosystem of nonprofits that can address the big challenges facing our region. Through capacity building programs, investing in equitable outcomes, and serving as a platform for nonprofit needs, we are increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of our local organizations. We believe that collaboration and innovation will help our community be successful.

How You Can Help

The Fund for the Triangle serves as a perpetual source of philanthropic investment in our region. It provides an opportunity for individual donors, fundholders, private foundations, businesses, and other funders to make a greater impact in our community, together. The Fund for the Triangle provides a permanent pool of funding to address the most pressing needs – now and for generations to come – in our focus (the arts, community development, the environment and youth literacy). These funds are used to make direct grants to nonprofits, commission research to understand local needs better, and to convene leaders around those needs. You can join us and have an impact for decades to come.
