What Is A Community Foundation?
Community Foundations are nonprofit, public charities created by a collaboration of local citizens with a common purpose — to improve the quality of life in their region. Eastern Carolina Community Foundation is one of nearly 750 community foundations across the nation. We are a unique tax-exempt nonprofit that establishes permanent charitable funds that are pooled and invested to meet the current and future needs of communities throughout the seven counties of the Pee Dee.
Overseen by a volunteer board of citizens and run by professionals who are experts in local philanthropy, the Community Foundation invests and manages these charitable funds and assists donors in distributing gifts to nonprofit civic, cultural, educational, environmental, faith-based, health and human service organizations.
