It’s been almost a year in the making, so you can imagine how excited we are to finally be able to share with you. The site launched this morning with 58 projects and as I write this, only 54 still need funding. We couldn’t be happier.

  • North Carolina Dance Theatre received $10,000 to help underwrite their performance of Bolero! The power2give gifts will help pay for dancer and choreographer time, and costumes.
  • Children’s Theatre of Charlotte received $560 to fill their van with gasoline so they can bring their Taradiddle performances to children, especially those in rural communities, all over North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.
  • Community School of the Arts received $1,300 to support scholarships for low-income children. The money will support one child’s music lessons for 42 weeks.
  • The Charlotte Symphony will receive $600 to buy supplies for their Lollipops concerts. The supplies help small children learn about and connect with music.
We’re excited that the community is already making investments in the cultural sector through power2give. As the days and weeks roll on, I’m sure you’ll be hearing a lot more about the site and the great projects you can impact. Stay tuned this week for more project updates. And don’t forget to check out and find a project you’re passionate about!
