The Belk Foundation
The Belk Foundation is a family foundation whose philanthropic work is the public expression of gratitude and commitment by the Belk family to the communities that have enabled the Belk department store organization to grow and prosper since its founding in 1888 by William Henry Belk and Dr. John M. Belk.
The Belk Foundation believes that education is a basis for successful society and that a quality education is the right of all children and youth. Its mission is to invest in schools and organizations that work aggressively to ensure all students graduate from high school and continue on an intentional path toward college, career and life.
