Ready to move forward and bring everyone along.

Our response to a 2015 study putting Charlotte last among the 50 largest US cities in economic mobility:  To focus like never before on the causes and solutions so all of our residents – regardless of zip code, background, race or income — have the opportunity to achieve. We know we are not unique among cities in the challenges we face. But we can be – and intend to be – focused on progress for all like no else.

This is where GreenLight Charlotte comes in. We give Charlotte a way to match the most pressing needs of low-income residents with the country’s best social innovations.
