It’s not a secret that Next Stage loves emerging organizations. We love their optimism, their ‘dig in and roll up your sleeves’ attitude, and their rootedness in community. It’s long been part of Next Stage’s aim to strengthen these startup nonprofits and help them build an organizational foundation that sets them up for long-term success.

It’s why we launched Cultivate more than four years ago. Every year since, Next Stage has led this emerging nonprofit incubator, a cohort that offers free curriculum, training and consulting for six organizations each year. We’re proud of the 21 nonprofits that have graduated from the program and we love to see their continued growth and impact across the region.

On Thursday, March 10, Next Stage will host a virtual graduation ceremony for the 2022 cohort from 11:45am-1:15pm. Please join us as we celebrate this incredible group of nonprofit leaders!

You won’t want to miss learning more about these six organizations and their ambitious plans for the future. Their passion, ingenuity and absolute commitment will be game-changing across a range of Charlotte’s social issues and needs.You’ll hear from:
