The Community Foundation of NC east is extremely pleased to support GLOW (Girls Leadership Academy of Wilmington). On January 25, 2018, The Community Foundation of NC East served as a major sponsor for the annual Celebrity Chef Food Network GLOW Fundraiser at Landfall Country. This year's Celebrity Chef was Guy Fieri from the Food Network Chanel and the TV Show Dives, Diners and Drive Ins.

Funds raised go towards the construction of the new GLOW Academy scheduled to break ground later this year. GLOW prepares its female students for successful college admission, college graduation and citizenship through life. The 6th thru 12th grade, single gender school is designed for first generation college students. Its 'whole girl' focus will offer a learning environment that nurtures the emotional, physical and academic facets of each student, developing a strong and supportive culture among its faculty, students, their families and the broader community.
