SHARE Charlotte hosts The Truist Foundation for August's SHARE-a-Latte Event
SHARE Charlotte is building a better Charlotte by empowering nonprofits and helping people invest in their communities - in ways that matter most to them.
We understand that when you are leading a nonprofit, there aren’t many opportunities to find your tribe, connect with funders, and collaborate with your peers so that you can be a more impactful nonprofit leader.
SHARE Charlotte’s goal is to empower our nonprofit leaders through a program called SHARE SHINE™️ which stands for SHAREholders In Nonprofit Empowerment. We offer year-round, affordable programming to provide networking and professional development opportunities.
A key component of SHARE SHINE™️ is our monthly networking coffee we call SHARE-a-Latte. SHARE-a-Latte brings together corporate funders and influential Charlotteans to meet and share information and resources with nonprofit leaders.
Recently we hosted Lynette Bell, President of The Truist Foundation to share funding priorities and insights. Truist's purpose is to "inspire and build better lives and communities." By partnering with nonprofit organizations across their markets, the Truist Foundation helps nonprofits innovate and make a meaningful difference in the lives of those they serve.
SHARE Charlotte gathered with nonprofit leaders from across the city at the Urban League of Central Carolina's uptown office to enjoy coffee, networking, and impactful conversations.
How do events like these help our nonprofit organizations?
SHARE-a-Latte nonprofit leaders who attended the event let us know that they enjoyed:
- "Meeting new people"
- "Gaining clarity around the Truist Foundations' intents and priorities"
- "Learning about local funding opportunities"
- "Listening to informative and impactful speakers"
