Background

NCNG was organized in September 2002 by a group of grantmakers who saw the need for a statewide forum to connect and support grantmaking organizations’ staff, board and trustees. NCNG is a charitable venture operating under the fiscal sponsorship of the North Carolina Community Foundation.

 

Non-Solicitation Policy

NCNG provides a forum for funders to collaborate and network together, because we know we do our best work together. We maintain the culture of our network by ensuring that NCNG events and the NCNG network are not used for business solicitation or fundraising by members or guests.

Organizations that function as both grantmakers and grantseekers, and individuals who have roles in both philanthropy and development, must ensure their membership or attendance at events is not used for fundraising or promotion purposes.
