Our Assistance League of Greater Wilmington Families

Some of our largest donations come from our members and their families.

Atlantic Telephone Membership Corporation (ATMC) is a nonprofit cooperative providing communications services to residents of Brunswick County. ATMC adds value to its community through a grant program that gives directly to causes and organizations that make a difference in the lives of residents served by the cooperative.  ATMC has been supporting Assistance League of Greater Wilmington since 2014. We recently received a grant to be used for our KNAP Sack program in Brunswick County and appreciate their continued support.

Dan Cameron Family Foundation

At the direction of Hilda C. Dill, a generous gift was made to Assistance League of Greater Wilmington for use in our Operation School Bell program.  We greatly appreciate the support of the Dan Cameron Family Foundation as we work to make a difference in the lives of local schoolchildren.

Wilmington Cape Fear Rotary

We received a generous grant from the Wilmington Cape Fear Rotary Club.  This will be used to benefit many adults and children in need in our area.

Belk Charity Days

Assistance League of Greater Wilmington has been proud to partner with Belk  for their charity days ever since we introduced a chapter in the greater Wilmington area. Selling tickets within our organization and to the general public brings many residents to help the cause. Our volunteers also help on the sale days. In these ways we contribute to the charity event. This involvement entitles us to the ticket proceeds and a portion of the day’s sales. Our partnership with Belk underscores our mission of serving the community.

Whole Foods

Funding was received for our Operation School Bell Snack Pack program from the Whole Foods Market Community Giving Program.  The recommendation to apply came from one of their Wilmington market employees.  Many thanks for the recommendation and the award as we all work together to end childhood hunger.

North Carolina Community Foundation

The Suzanne and George Taylor Endowment Fund, a component fund of the North Carolina Community Foundation, has, over the years, granted us a generous amount for Operation School Bell.  Their charitable award for the 2019-2020 fiscal year will allow us to serve numerous children in New Hanover County.

Coastal Carolina Women’s Club

Grants have helped enhance our philanthropic programs including Operation Teddy Bear and Kids on the Block.

Catherine Kennedy Home Foundation

Assistance League of Greater Wilmington was pleased to receive a grant awarded by the Catherine Kennedy Home Foundation in Wilmington.  The funding will be used to purchase items for use by senior residents at AHEPA and Spring Arbor of Wilmington as part of our Operation Seniors program.  In the past, grant monies from the foundation have been used at another senior assisted living community.  We appreciate their continued support of our philanthropic programs.

Walmart has helped us with the purchase of clothing and supplies for children in need.  We thank them for their support.

Talbots Charity Days

Talbots in Mayfaire has donated 10% of sales to Assistance League of Greater Wilmington during several shopping events. The proceeds will go toward teacher awards, clothing for children in need, scholarships and our other philanthropic programs.


A donation from the Corning Incorporated Foundation – Wilmington facility has benefited our Operation School Bell Snack Pack program. We sincerely appreciate their generosity and support.
