#YPMixerCLT 2022 Presented by U.S. Bank

Back in person this year after a two-year hiatus, the 9th Annual #YPMixerCLT provides an annual opportunity for hundreds of Young Professionals to network and meet local nonprofits and Charlotte's most influential Young Professional Boards.

We are so excited to partner with U.S. Bank to host this event and to hear directly from them on why this partnership and giving back to the community is so important to their organization.

Whether it’s serving on a nonprofit’s board or helping with a Rail Trail cleanup, U.S. Bank employees believe it’s part of their job to make their city a better place to live, work and play. That’s why on May 18 U.S. Bank is so proud to sponsor the SHARE Charlotte #YPMixerCLT for a third consecutive year, helping to support the city’s next generation of philanthropists.

SHARE Charlotte’s sixth annual Do Good Week (April 18-23) is Charlotte’s local celebration of National Volunteer Week which rallies our community to Do Good locally through volunteerism, supporting hundreds of local causes and organizations.

We are so grateful to Spiracle Media for their support of Do Good Week and raising the level of awareness of the needs that local nonprofits have for volunteers. Plus, through volunteering not only does the nonprofit benefit but so does the volunteer because “It Feels Good to Do Good”!

We asked our friends at Spiracle what motivates them to dedicate their team’s time and give so generously with their volunteer hours.

#SpotlightOnCLT: Digital Equity

This month we will shine our #SpotlightOnCLT on Digital Equity and highlight the nonprofit organizations who are working in our community to make access to devices, skills, training and digital literacy possible.

You have probably heard about the Digital Divide which simply refers to the gulf between those who have ready access to computers and the internet, and those who do not.  

However, as with everything there is an evolution and new understanding of what we must evolve to, which is Digital Equity.
