With funding from The Duke Endowment and more than 30 local philanthropic investors, Charlotte has joined six other cities in the GreenLight Fund, a national organization that works to identify and address the challenges facing low-income children and families in urban areas. GreenLight Charlotte will conduct an annual process to identify critical needs; import innovative organizations with proven, measurable results; and galvanize community support to help programs reach and sustain impact. GreenLight aims to grow a national network of sites that learn and work with each other to find and spread effective social impact solutions.
