Triangle Community Foundation announced this month that they will be moving their office to The Frontier in the fall. The 33-year-old organization has occupied space at the American Tobacco campus in downtown Durham for the past ten years.

President & CEO Lori O’Keefe expressed that staff is excited about the move, and the growing organization looks forward to this new chapter.

“As a community-based organization, we are really looking forward to being in the heart of the Triangle, within Research Triangle Park,” she said. “Our staff is thrilled about the additional accessibility for our donors, the inviting and innovative office that is being designed for us, and the amount of dedicated space that will be available for nonprofit use.”

Slated to move in late October, the Foundation has engaged CBRE Group and Gensler for real estate and architectural assistance, to create a space that is welcoming to everyone.

President and CEO of the Research Triangle Foundation, Bob Geolas shared O’Keefe’s excitement about the news.

“Triangle Community Foundation is such a wonderful fit for The Frontier and Research Triangle Park,” he said. “Their mission to support and uplift nonprofits continues to have an impactful effect on our region, and I look forward to seeing their work in action as they become part of The Frontier community.”

The Foundation has made a home in the American Tobacco campus over the last decade, and O’Keefe expressed her gratitude for that opportunity, and her enthusiasm to see how ATC continues to grow in the future.

“Triangle Community Foundation has touched each and every aspect of what makes our region a community and one of the best places in the world to live, “said Michael Goodmon, Vice President of Real Estate for Capital Broadcasting Company, Inc., owners of the American Tobacco Campus.

The Foundation plans to hold a public gathering in January to show off their new office, and will announce those details in the fall.


For the past 33 years, Triangle Community Foundation has enhanced the lives of all its residents by connecting donors with causes they care about, investing in nonprofits, and serving as a resource for local issues in the Triangle region of North Carolina. Each year the Foundation grants more than $18 million back into the community, partnering with donors and nonprofits to make a difference, now and for the future. Dedicated to building strong nonprofits, successful community leaders, and a Triangle where everyone can thrive, the Foundation works to continue learning and educating in our region, with the continuous support of their generous donors and fundholders.

Located in heart of RTP’s Park Center development, The Frontier is an open collaboration destination that can be used by anyone in the community to work, host events or charge up. Made possible by The Research Triangle Park, many of The Frontier’s amenities are free for community use. There’s never any shortage of activity, and all citizens of the Triangle are welcome to use the space as if it were their very own.
