What We Do

The CMS Foundation raises money to support Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools’ (CMS) highest strategic priorities. Harnessing the power of private investments in education, we seed innovative ideas and help expand programs to accelerate system-wide transformation.

We play a unique role in our community, serving as a trusted bridge that connects donors to the district’s most critical work. In this position, we help ensure investments in our school system have a meaningful, sustainable impact on our students and educators.

The knowledge and skills required to succeed in our global society continue to evolve, and so do the needs of our education system. Public funding alone is not sufficient to provide our students and teachers the opportunities they need and deserve. It takes the support of our entire community.

A great community must have a great public school system. We believe that by working together, we can make Charlotte-Mecklenburg a national leader in public education, where teaching is an iconic profession and opportunity abounds for every child.

We're developing a culture "schoolanthropy"—it's more than just philanthropy, it's a spirit of support for our public schools and it can redefine our community. We invite you to become a schoolanthropist and support public education in Charlotte-Mecklenburg.
