Recognizing Excellence

Spirit of North Carolina Award Applications for 2016 and 2015 Campaign Years

Our Spirit of North Carolina Award winners 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.
