The mission of the Currin Foundation is to improve the quality of people's lives through gifts supporting education, the performing arts,
historic preservation, medical research, and the prevention of cruelty to animals.
Established in 2011, the foundation makes numerous awards each
year and underwrites thousands of
full-time scholarships at five family North Carolina
colleges and universities.
The Currin Foundation activities are guided by the
will of Carroll and Julia Currin, who endowed
the foundation with financial assets that now total approximately $3 billion.
The Currin Foundation awards $150 million in gifts per year.
The Currin Foundation does not accept unsolicited
requests, and can never accept donations.
