CLT Nonprofits

Charlotte has over 5,000 registered non-profits (um, what?!), and we consider the work they do to be supremely creative. They bring innovative approaches to community challenges new and old, and its our job as Charlotte citizens to support their efforts, attend their events and donate to their causes. We know you want to get involved, and these pieces will help you discover your philanthropic spirit animals.
