Relief for Hurricane Victims

“A lot of people had lost everything. They had to be evacuated so quickly that they didn’t have time to take anything.” – North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper

Hurricane Florence has ravaged the Carolinas, destroying houses, businesses, and for many, hope. Our hearts are with the community foundations on the coast and the communities they continue to serve amid danger and damage.

If you are interested in supporting the relief efforts, please visit any of the pages below to donate to a disaster relief fund targeting areas most deeply affected by the storm.

Richard and Susan Schindel Scholarship Funds

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

President Emeritus

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

Being a part of the Community Foundation scholarship committee is the highlight of my year. For many, a scholarship from the Community Foundation is the reason they are able to continue reaching for their dreams and changing the future of our world. I hope each recipient knows just how inspirational they are to those of us who are lucky enough to read their stories.

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.
