Invest In Us

Healthy and vibrant communities depend on a diversity of resources and opportunities in order to thrive. Rural North Carolina is no different. Your philanthropic investment in the Rural Center is essential to our ability to support all North Carolinians.

The food we eat, the clean water we drink, the mountain and beach towns we enjoy, and the economic growth and vitality we celebrate are all linked by a common thread: North Carolina’s rural communities. A healthy and self-sufficient rural North Carolina is essential for the well being of our entire state.

For more than 30 years, the Rural Center has been a national model for leadership development, expert research, powerful community engagement, and critical small-business lending. We are grateful for our investors at the local, state, and federal levels, as well as our corporate and foundation partners, for their confidence in our work. The Rural Center exists today because of their vision and continued support.

Now we want you on this journey with us. Join us, and together let’s build a better and brighter tomorrow for rural North Carolina.
