The Vintage Foundation, Inc. was Founded in 2011 by Densel and Nikki Fleming to serve as the philanthropic arm of their company, Vintage Wealth Management Group, Inc. This Private Foundation is a 501(c)3, that exists for the purpose of improving the community through targeted outreach and philanthropy. The Vintage Foundation, Inc. supports the community by financially Giving Back in the areas of Education, Health, Social Issues and Economic Disparities and is a proud member of the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits and a proud partner of SHARE Charlotte. Further, Co-Founder/Executive Director, Nikki Fleming, is also a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals as well as a member of the Nonprofit Learning Lab.
"There is so much work to be done in our communities and, in reality, all we have to do is simply do the work. Solving complex problems can sometimes be achieved through very simple solutions. Giving Back, for example, is a basic, yet impactful, solution for many of our greatest social challenges and if we join together to collectively share our time, resources and ideas, we can affect real change in our communities. I truly believe that service is the greatest gift that we can give to others and, I, therefore, choose to lead by example. Philanthropy and Giving Back are not opportunities reserved only for the wealthy - they are a way of life that can be practiced by anyone that desires to make a difference in the lives of others."
