  • Together we are creating a stronger community in Chapel Hill and Carrboro by convening leaders and building our community’s capacity for problem solving. With your support, we will grow and strengthen our services, programming, and our ability to build a strong and sustainable future for our community. Each year your Partnership supports a broad range of initiatives including the iconic programs and events the community has come to anticipate and trust. In 2014, the Partnership:

    • Held an exceptional Inter-City Visit in Athens, Ga with 100 community leaders

    • Convened 250 leaders to raise money to support our programs at annual bocce and golf tournaments

    • Organized professional development for our network of 80 nonprofits with Nonprofit Roundtable

    • Delivered Grow in Carrboro social entrepreneurship seminar series for the Town of Carrboro

    • Trained 17 Leadership Chapel Hill participants who raised $6000 for two local non-profits

    • Delivered 7th annual State of the Community Report showing critical social, environmental, and economic indicators

    • Recognized community heroes and 11 uniformed officers at 12th Salute to Community Heroes

    • Extended fiscal sponsorship  to local nonprofit startups

    In 2015, your Partnership will continue to expand and broaden its innovative programming. In addition, we look to:


    • Reconvene the Community Leadership Council to bring together business, university, civic, and community leaders to discuss and address currrent cross-cutting community issues and anticipate future needs, trends and challenges. This ambititous and prestigious roundtable ran strong from 2007 to 2010. It was the original source of our Inter-City Visits.

    • Host an Intra-City Visit, for community leaders and community members to gain new perspectives on the places they see everyday here in Chapel Hill-Carrboro and Orange County. This event is not to be missed if you love Chapel Hill and Carrbro!

    • Offer more entrepreneurship and social enterprise programming like the Grow In Carrboro seminar series from October 2014.

    • ...find new possibilities of bringing business community and Chamber resources to community development!


    Your Partnership has made great strides in our community this year and is being recognized both locally and nationally for leadership and innovative programming. Help us continue this work.
