We’re not your average foundation.

And this isn’t your average school lunch.

Philanthropy is not limited to corporations or wealthy individuals.  We believe everyone can have an impact on education through volunteering, investing financially, or simply exuding a spirit of support for our public schools. We call the support of public education “schoolanthropy.”

The Schoolanthropy Luncheon is the CMS Foundation’s largest fundraiser of the year. During this annual event, we highlight our philanthropic priorities and provide insight into the strategic work happening within CMS. With student performances, teacher tributes and remarks from CMS and community leaders, this special event brings together “schoolanthropists” from all walks of life to celebrate and support the students and educators in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools.

Be inspired.

Make an Impact.

Be a part of the experience.

We’re developing a culture of “schoolanthropy” in our community. It’s more than just philanthropy, it’s a genuine spirit of support for our public schools. We invite you to become a schoolanthropist.
