North Carolina companies, foundations, and individual donors have generously supported our Go Global movement for years. Our partners’ financial and in-kind gifts fuel our efforts to empower North Carolina with the skills, understanding, connections and knowledge to succeed in a global world.

We are so grateful!

Here are just two examples of how our partners are helping connect North Carolina to the world and the world to North Carolina:

Fidelity Investments, RTP

Through an innovative giving model, an international team of programmers, coders, and designers at Fidelity Investments volunteered hundreds of hours to design and build a brand new website for us at no cost. The 2016 launch of kick started the Center for International Understanding’s rebranding process. Common Impact in Boston connected us with Fidelity and there are no words to express our thanks for the amazing work of the Fidelity team!

SAS and the Goodnight Education Foundation

In addition, they have provided beautiful space for hosting such events as a N.C. Coalition for Global Competitiveness regional meeting in 2015 and a successful Global Engagement Summit in 2016.
