Our Story

We all have something to share

In 2012, founder Kelly Brooks saw the need for a grassroots, hyper-local online platform to connect people in Charlotte to the needs of hundreds of local nonprofits. The intent was to amplify the work of the entire nonprofit community, regardless of an organization’s size, focus or budget, and make it easy for neighbors to support the causes they care about.

SHARECharlotte.org launched with 87 nonprofit partners, offering simple ways for neighbors to share their time, talents and treasure. Today, SHARE Charlotte partners with more than 400 nonprofits and provides the community with volunteer opportunities, events and a unique online shopping experience called Give Shop®, where neighbors can purchase items that nonprofits need to run their businesses and programs.

In January of 2018, Brooks turned over leadership of SHARE Charlotte and established Share Good, a social enterprise focused on scaling the SHARE model and tech to communities across the country. Our first expansion market - SHARE Omaha - launched in January of 2019!
