Stoke the Fires of Creativity in Charlotte

Whether you strike a match with a small donation, fan the flames with a sustained monthly gift, or fuel a bonfire with a large gift, you are helping to usher Charlotte into its future as one of America's great creative cities.

Investing financially in our organization will allow us to stoke the fires of creativity in our community so that the entire metropolitan area is alight with new concepts, creative ventures, and economic opportunities.


Charlotte Is Creative is an independent, nonprofit 501(c)3 organization and thus depends on generous donors like yourself to fuel the creativity we spark throughout the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area with projects like the Black Lives Matter mural, CreativeMornings/Charlotte, the HUG Micro-Grant program, the Invest In Creatives Fund, and the Creative Entrepreneurs Initiative.

Your support also allows us to connect creative individuals and organizations with paid opportunities through our partnerships with LendingTree, Wells Fargo, OrthoCarolina, Lowe’s, Foundation For The Carolinas, the Mint Museum, Charlotte Center City Partners, and many more.
