Charity League is an intergenerational women’s philanthropic organization committed to enhancing the lives of children in our community. As a non-profit organization, we have no overhead and have no paid staff. Our group is one of dedicated volunteers.
Through ongoing contact with principals at sixteen Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) and representatives at local hospitals we keep in touch with the needs of community children. Thanks to a grant from Speedway Children’s Charities, Charity League can further enhance its designated “Little People, Big Needs” projects described below.
Providing the Basics
Charity League believes that all children should have the basics and educational tools needed to succeed in school. We assist at-risk children by providing local schools and programs like the Greater Enrichment Project and Freedom Schools with uniforms, backpacks, school supplies and learning essentials to enhance the resources available for these children.
Our support also extends to communities where children are living under challenging circumstances. We understand that even small things can help comfort little ones in times of crisis. Our programs have reached children with autism and visually impaired children, enabling them to expand their learning atmosphere.

In honor of our organization’s “roots” in hospital service, we provide a bi-monthly music enrichment program to bring a sense of joy and normalcy to children of all ages at Presbyterian Hemby Children’s Hospital.
Thanks to a grant from Speedway Children’s Charities, Charity League can further enhance dozens of its designated “Little People, Big Needs” projects described above. The much-appreciated support of the racing community, along with other Charity League Funds, enabled us to touch the lives of almost 13,000 Charlotte-area children in 2014 – 2015.
