Carolina Panthers Charities was established in 1994 through Foundation for the Carolinas. Our mission is to assess the needs of communities within North and South Carolina and to provide financial resources to assist in creating programs that make measurable and sustainable change for youth and families in our region.


Funding is available to non-profit agencies in North and South Carolina whose missions and programs address the needs of youth.

The maximum grant amount offered through the Carolina Panthers Charities grant process is $10,000.

One-time projects or ongoing projects are eligible for funding. Priority consideration is given to projects that are sustainable.

The following areas generally are not funded:

  • Capital campaigns
  • Endowment funds
  • Conferences
  • Grants to individuals
  • Travel expenses
  • Salaries and benefits

Organizations must be recognized as tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Due to the volume of applications, we will not provide feedback on proposals that are not funded.

The Carolina Panthers thank you for your valued work and commitment to serving our region. We wish you continued success and endurance in your efforts to address the needs of our communities.
