Nonprofit Behind Large Donations in Greensboro
NEWS & RECORD
GREENSBORO, N.C. (March 3, 2015) — When the executive director of a coalition of local groups working on ending homelessness met Elizabeth Carlock Phillips of the Phillips Foundation, he was just looking for a grant to cover a pending $79,000 bill connected to a data system.
“Halfway through the conversation, Elizabeth turned to me and said, ‘What would you do with a million-dollar grant?’ ” said Darryl Kosciak of Partners Ending Homelessness. “It took me a second because you don’t hear that every day.”
You don’t. But then, the Phillips Foundation is not your everyday charitable organization.
Phillips, the executive director, said the foundation is focused on “once-in-a-generation” projects.
