What Matters 2017: Our Kids
The Triangle is home to almost 100,000 children under the age of eight. Each child is born with the potential to succeed, but significant opportunity gaps develop before kindergarten even starts. These are our kids. What can we do to shift the path from poverty to prosperity so each one of our kids can thrive? How can we work together to accelerate change in the Triangle? Join us and let’s learn how to ensure our kids have access to their bright future, in school and beyond.
About the What Matters Community Luncheon: What Matters is an annual community luncheon that inspires people from all sectors in our Triangle region to learn about and address key community issues together. The event begins with dynamic morning workshops and culminates in a lunch program featuring a keynote speaker and awards presentation. What Matters attracts more than 500 corporate, civic, philanthropic, academic, healthcare, religious and nonprofit leaders who want to make our community great for everyone. At the event, the Foundation will present an Innovation Award to a nonprofit collaboration and two philanthropic awards focused on community members – the Catalyst Award and the Legacy Award. Event proceeds support the Fund for the Triangle, which provides funding for the arts, community development, environmental conservation, and youth literacy.
Please join us in supporting our kids through the local Campaign for Grade-Level Reading communities by bringing a new children’s book to donate at What Matters!
