As we approach the end of the year, the NC Chamber Foundation is excited to share an end-of-year video which highlights the Foundation’s accomplishments this year and previews what is in store for 2024.
It was a pivotal year for the NC Chamber Foundation. The year started with a strategic planning initiative to develop the five-year NC Leads plan and the hiring of NC Chamber Foundation Director of Workforce Competitiveness Vincent Ginski. Vincent is leading the creation of the NC Health Talent Alliance which launched in May and has already expanded to four pilot regions across the state.
Continuing our efforts to remove barriers to entering the workforce, this spring the NC Chamber Foundation commissioned a statewide survey of North Carolina voters to better understand the depth of North Carolina’s child care crisis. We also partnered with myFutureNC and CREED-NC to host our first business convening at Winston Salem State University.
The Golden LEAF Foundation identified and pledged funding to the NC Chamber Foundation this fall to lead a strategic planning initiative that will strengthen North Carolina’s position as a leader for agriculture and agribusiness in the United States.
Earlier this month, we publicly announced a capital campaign to fund the Foundation’s five-year NC Leads strategic plan. 74 percent of funds are secured toward a $7.5 million goal to support the five-year plan, and we’ll kick off 2024 by closing out a successful campaign.
The NC Chamber Foundation greatly appreciate the continued engagement from our state’s business leaders and looks forward to continuing our work together to surpass these accomplishments in 2024.
