Like other fall giving campaigns, North Carolina Community Shares is a federation. This means that when you give to us, you are funding member groups that we select and support. In our case, we focus exclusively on community-led organizations that are working at the roots of the issues — and making a measurable difference.
How you give to these groups couldn’t be easier. Simply fill out a pledge form on which you specify how much you want to give from each paycheck — even a dollar makes a difference. Your donation is then automatically deducted at payroll time.
Our work as a federation — and your donation — makes it possible for our member groups to focus on the task at hand rather then spend their time fundraising. There are economies of scale at work as well — we have a low management, administration and communication fee of 10% for our work, under the industry average and far below the amount needed if each group were creating their own materials.
