What We Do
GreenLight Charlotte applies the model of the six other GreenLight sites, aiming to transform the lives of children and families in high-poverty urban areas by creating a consistent annual process to: • Identify critical gaps • Import innovative, entrepreneurial programs that can have a significant, measurable impact and • Galvanize local support to help programs reach and sustain impact in the new city
- GreenLight has launched 20 organizations since 2004 in their sites, scaling the most successful solutions into new cities.
- Over 56,000 families were served in 2017 across GreenLight communities, with an average increase of 40% in individuals served from year-to-year.
- GreenLight Charlotte is assisted in its funding decisions by a board of 28 advisors, made up of community members from all walks of life.
