Spirit of North Carolina Award Winners

Congratulations to our 2018 Spirit of North Carolina Award winners! 

United Way of North Carolina honored 33 companies from across North Carolina with a Spirit of North Carolina Award.  These winners were selected by 24 judges from United Way organizations across the state and were selected based on seven "standards of excellence." They have not only demonstrated excellence in their United Way campaign but are building a philanthropic culture community-wide.  In addition to campaign participation and donations received, winning organizations received high marks for their volunteer culture, including collaborative work with United Way as well as other organizations in the community.  Five companies were found to be outstanding in their efforts and received the Excellence in Community Spirit Award.
