Catalysts for change. Meaningful Partnerships. Moving North Carolina forward.

“At the John M. Belk Endowment, we want to be a catalyst for change, not only in the world of education, but also in the world of philanthropy. Educators, employers, and philanthropists—we all have a new role to play. We look forward not only to funding and celebrating initiatives that create a sustainable and positive shift in our state but also to creating meaningful partnerships with learning institutions and corporations as we serve as a thought partner for North Carolina’s postsecondary education and workforce issues.” - MC Pilon, Board Chair
