The CNOTE (Create Nothing Other Than Excellence) Foundation is a 501(c)(3)  launched by three brothers from Durham, North Carolina, all graduates of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University's College of Engineering. We set out with a goal  to create sustainable scholarship solutions at HBCUs for underrepresented youth, and strengthen university endowments.

We've chosen a unique path to raise funds for endowments that is designed to bring together HBCU alumni, current students/staff, and local communities.

Using grassroots donation campaigns and proceeds from hosting enthralling community events, art showcases, and festivals, we've been able to ignite an unprecedented, long-term HBCU giving campaign. We are proud to have raised over $30,000 as of July 2021!

We encourage you to explore our site to learn more about our organization, its mission, and HBCUs in general.
