What We Fund

The Belk Foundation invests deeply in public education, and we’re committed to supporting programs that produce measurable results for students in North Carolina. Our two key areas of focus, K – 3 achievement and excellent teachers and leaders, have proven over and over again to put children on the track for success. 

We continually seek like-minded partners and invest in programs that support our mission. 

96% of third graders who are reading on grade level will go on to graduate high school—a statistic bolstered largely by excellent teachers, the most important in-school influence on students.
