Thanks for all of your ideas; Community Forum coming up

Thanks for all of your ideas for how to help Charlotte's struggling nonprofits. You submitted more than 350 ideas through the Mission Possible Edison Nation online survey. You can view all of the submissions here. Next week, a panel of citizens will meet to go through the ideas and begin the process of narrowing them down. Later, we'll present the top ideas to the public.

Also, on October 5, WFAE, one of our partners in Mission Possible, is hosting a community forum on charitable needs and community philanthropic funding.


The WFAE Public Conversation will feature a panel of experts on charitable needs and community philanthropy including – Todd Cohen, Editor and Publisher of the Raleigh-based Philanthropy Journal; Carol Hardison, Executive Director of Crisis Assistance Ministry in Charlotte; and, Richard “Stick” Williams, President of the Duke Energy Foundation.

Moderated by WFAE News Director Greg Collard, the forum will highlight suggestions that have emerged through the “Charlotte Mission Possible” survey and a citizen-led process to review those ideas. Discussion at the Public Conversation will include questions and comments from the audience.

WFAE’s Public Conversations is an ongoing series of community forums where Charlotte-area residents discuss a wide range of timely issues and topics. The forum on charitable needs will take place from 6:30–8:00p.m in McGlohon Theatre at Charlotte’s Spirit Square, located at 345 N. College Street. Admission is free and reservations are required at .
