We work hard to preserve North Carolina's treasures, provide the best cultural events and advocate for the state's arts industry, but we couldn't do any of it without your support.

We're working on a way to allow you to give to an unrestricted fund where leaders from our department can match your funds with our programs that need them the most. In the meantime, several of our historic sites, museums, and special programs are in particular need.


NC Awards

Since 1961, North Carolina recognizes the outstanding achievement of its citizens in the fields of fine arts, literature, public service and science through the prestigious North Carolina Awards, the highest civilian honor given by the state. The Awards Ceremony is an important reflection of the vitality of our great state, highlighting the extraordinary achievements that promote North Carolina tourism, commerce, research and education. If you would like to support this initiative, please contact Kimberly Kandros, Manager of Development & Special Projects. 919.814.6657. kimberly.kandros@ncdcr.gov
