Support NCPC While You Shop Amazon

Shop Amazon Smile

If you regularly shop on Amazon, you can easily give to NCPC at no extra cost to you. By choosing North Carolina Preservation Consortium as your designated charity on Amazon Smile, Amazon donates a percentage of the purchase price (excluding taxes, shipping, etc.) to NCPC. Simply start your shopping at Amazon Smile and the site will remember that you have designated NCPC as your Smile recipient. That is all there is to it, no strings attached. You can change your charity designation at any time, but we hope you keep it on NCPC.

More ways to give to NCPC can be found online. Thank you for your support.

NCPC and NCMC Announce Disaster Relief Grant

The North Carolina Preservation Consortium (NCPC) and the North Carolina Museums Council (NCMC) have joined forces to assist collecting institutions affected by disasters.

Purpose and Scope of Grant

To provide funds for collection supplies for institutions affected by disasters declared either by the state (North Carolina) or federal authorities. These include but are not limited to hurricanes, floods, tornados, wildfires, and earthquakes.

Funds will be awarded between July 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021. Applications are accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis. Grants will be awarded until funds earmarked for the fiscal year are depleted.

Applicants must be institutional members of NCPC or NCMC, and must be within the declared North Carolina disaster areas as defined by FEMA or the Governor of North Carolina. Grants are not awarded to individuals.
