How We Got Here

Founder Kelly Brooks saw the need for a platform to easily connect ready and willing neighbors to Charlotte’s ever-growing nonprofit community, which needs support. And through that need, SHARE Charlotte was born. In December 2012, SHARECharlotte.org launched with 87 nonprofit partners, offering simple ways for neighbors to jump in and give back. Today, SHARE Charlotte partners with more than 400 nonprofits and provides the community with volunteer opportunities, events and a unique online shopping experience called Give Shop® where items nonprofits need to run their programs and business can be bought. Through its signature campaigns #GivingTuesdayCLT, Shop for GOOD and Do Good Week, SHARE Charlotte raises awareness about local nonprofits throughout the year and increases the level of community engagement.
