2017 New Office and Recent Grants Announcement
By Katie B. Morris - Posted January 17, 2017
Happy New Year Friends,
The fresh start and renewal that the new year brings always energizes me, and I hope that your 2017 is off to a strong beginning. Our year is already off to a busy start; today we announce an office move and wonderful new grantee partners.
Our new address is 6832 Morrison Blvd, Suite 100, Charlotte, NC 28211 and phone: (704) 544-5444. We look forward to hosting you for a visit in our new space! And please note that our staff is now exclusively using email addresses ending in @belkfoundation.org. See all updated contact information here.
Today we are also announcing our Fall 2016 grant investments. The commitment our grantee partners have to students inspires me daily. We have some interesting new partners, including Profound Gentlemen, which supports male teachers of color, and UNC Charlotte Cato College of Education, which will partner with the national group Deans for Impact to reshape its student teaching experience. A multi-year commitment to bring Opportunity Culture to eastern North Carolina expands our investment across the state of North Carolina, where we continue to look for ways to support K-3 core achievement and great public school teachers and leaders. Read more about these and other grants on our website.
I look forward to learning alongside and partnering with you in 2017.
