We fulfill our mission through our 4 Pillars of Unity.
Serve the Community

United we Thrive
Our organization was established on the cornerstone of collaboration. Since 2017 our Queen City Unity Ambassadors have volunteered over 80,000 hours with our partner organizations.
During these divisive times it is critical that we unite against racism. It is our goal to continue to positively impact young people through the Equity Ambassador Program . In 2020 we have also made it a priority to financially support other grassroots organizations on the ground and with volunteer capital.
It is going to take a collective effort for us to achieve the change that we all desire and to put an end to the lingering effects of segregation and racism in our society.
We ask that you please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Queen City Unity and help fuel our vision for an equal and equitable Charlotte for all. Your donation will directly impact the scholars of the Equity Ambassador Program and help provide families with much needed resources that they currently lack in their inequitable communities. Thank you for your ongoing support, Charlotte.
