Administrative History

The Charlotte College Foundation was initially incorporated as the Charlotte Community College Foundation in 1960 after Addison H. Reese proposed that a committee of Charlotte Community College System trustees investigate the “formation of a foundation to provide a permanent vehicle by which individuals and business firms may contribute financial support to the Colleges.” The foundation was established as an independent entity, and an inaugural donation of $2,500 was given by North Carolina National Bank (NCNB). With the transition of Charlotte College to a four-year school and its disassociation with Carver College, the foundation became the Charlotte College Foundation in 1963. Two years later, Charlotte College became part of the University of North Carolina, and the foundation’s name was changed again to the UNC Charlotte Foundation.
