Spirit of North Carolina Award Winners

Congratulations to our 2020 Spirit of North Carolina Award winners! 

The Spirit of North Carolina Award offers United Ways in North Carolina communities an opportunity to honor organizations whose United Way campaigns exemplify the “spirit” of their community. Winners meet specific standards of achievement and are selected by a team of United Way leaders from across the state. United Way of North Carolina leads the award nomination and judging process and presents the award annually. On March 3rd 2021, United Way of North Carolina recognized 78 Spirit of North Carolina Wward winners and 3 Excellence in Community Spirit Award winners. These companies and organizations not only demonstrated excellence in their United Way campaign but are building a philanthropic culture community-wide.
