The NC Triad is built on a culture of philanthropy and civic engagement. We care about our neighbors and our community – and we’re committed to giving back, whether through volunteering for local charities, schools, churches, synagogues and non-profits, or serving on advisory boards for local companies, events and community development organizations. Here, you’ll find many opportunities to pursue your passions and cultivate a greater sense of purpose and community outside of work.
