Funding Needs

We welcome partnerships with organizations seeking to assist us in expanding our impact across North Carolina.  Leadership North Carolina has alumni in 74 of our state's 100 counties.  As part of our 2014 Initiative, we are actively recruiting nominees from 26 under-represented, rural and low-wealth counties.  Since the the $4,000 tuition and $2,500 in hotel and travel expenses likely exceed the budgets of many nonprofits, governments, educational, and small business entities in these counties, we are seeking support to offset a portion of tuition and travel expenses for leaders from the following counties following the application to and acceptance to the Leadership North Carolina program in the spring of 2012.  2014 Initiative counties: Alexander, Alleghany, Bertie, Camden, Cherokee, Chowan, Clay, Gates, Graham, Greene, Hertford, Hoke, Hyde, Jackson, Jones, Madison, Martin, Northampton, Perquimans, Richmond, Stokes, Surry, Tyrrell, Washington, Yadkin, and Yancey.
