#GivingTuesday (December 3) is a global day of giving and #GivingTuesdayCLT (presented by Wells Fargo and powered by SHARE Charlotte) is the QC’s local response to this global movement. Join the Croixstone team in donating, giving your time and/or shopping for good to support more than 400 nonprofits across the greater Charlotte region.
The workforce in the Charlotte region has grown by 28 percent since 2001 (compared to just under 10 percent growth nationwide). This is one of several fascinating statistics included in the Charlotte Chamber’s 1st Quarter 2018 Growth Report. Read the report to learn about the largest sector by total employment in the Charlotte area (surprise – it isn’t financial services or retail) as well as the importance of both Professional Services and Manufacturing to the Charlotte region’s economy in Q1.
A club of 1,700 business and civic leaders, The Good Fellows Club was founded in 1917 by a group of men at Charlotte’s Second Presbyterian Church. Through the years, the club has evolved into a charity that has raised millions to help the working poor who often can’t get aid at other nonprofits.
The club’s board of directors consists of a number of well-known Charlotte business leaders including:
- W. Frank Dowd, IV, President
- John W. Harris, Vice President
- Thomas E. Meckley, Treasurer
