Spirit of North Carolina Award Winners

Congratulations to our 2016 Spirit of North Carolina Award winners!

Our Spirit of North Carolina Award winners are selected based on seven "standards of excellence." They have not only demonstrated excellence in their United Way campaign but also a strong philanthropic culture and community partnership. In addition to campaign participation and donations received, winning organizations received high marks for their overall organizational volunteer culture, including collaborative work with United Way as well as other organizations in the community; the benefit their employees receive from involvement in the community; and the role their leadership plays in promoting a culture of philanthropy and community support. Winners were determined by a panel of 18 judges from United Way organizations across the state.
