You can help build our community’s future.

We’re building the endowment for our Outer Banks, one membership at a time. You don’t have to contribute millions to be a part.

When you become a member of the Outer Banks Community Foundation, your membership contribution is deposited directly into our Community Fund, our single largest grant-making endowment.

Over the past 12 months, we have awarded more than $84,000 in grants from our Community Fund to diverse nonprofits across the Outer Banks, including the YMCA, Whalehead Preservation Trust, Room in the Inn, Hatteras Radio, Ocracoke Community Park, Mano al Hermano, Feline Hope Animal Shelter, Children and Youth Partnership, Hotline, Saltwater Connections, and many others. In the coming year, with your help, we hope to do even more. View our current membership flyer to learn about a few of our recent Community Fund grants.

But your membership goes beyond even that. The Community Fund helps support everything we do at the Community Foundation, from scholarships, to disaster relief and recovery, to supporting our nonprofits through free trainings, to all of our diverse grants. Simply put, your membership keeps our office doors open and the charitable funds flowing.

Please join us in changing lives and enriching our beloved community with a generous membership donation. Thanks so much for your support and for your tremendous heart for our community!

We’re building a great future for the Outer Banks. Join us. Become a member today.
