Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach have much to offer its nearly 100,000 residents. In addition to miles of stunning beaches, this Port City offers history and culture unlike any other on North Carolina’s coast. Opportunities abound in the area for shopping and entertainment. Annual traditions, such as the North Carolina Azalea Festival and Jazz Festival bring thousands to our area each year. Exciting entertainment is a commitment at Thalian Hall Center for the Performing Arts, Louise Wells Cameron Art Museum and Kenan Auditorium on the UNCW campus.
The Frank H. Kenan Chapel at Landfall is an interfaith chapel for religious activities such as weddings, memorial services, baptisms, recitals and concerts, bible studies, religious education programs, and for individual meditation and prayer. The Kenan Chapel is conveniently located in the Landfall Community.
The CCL/UNCW Partnership, begun in 2006, was designed to enhance the quality of life for Landfall residents and, at the same time, provide the university access to the multi-talented residents of the Landfall community whose knowledge and expertise can enhance the learning experience for UNCW students. Special lecture series at the CCL include a variety of interesting topics. The university also hosted a tour of campus and Landfall Family Day at a Seahawks baseball game. New programs are continually being added.
UNCW’s Cameron School of Business is fortunate to have many experienced executives from CCL involved in the future of our students as members of the Cameron Executive Network. They provide a unique teaching platform whose positive impact on the students is priceless.
The Landfall Foundation was formed to support Wilmington charities. It has allowed the Landfall community and CCL members an opportunity to make a valuable contribution to our city by distributing grants to smaller organizations that are often under funded. Although small, these local charities and causes meet broad and vital community needs.
Since its start in 1996, the Foundation has raised and contributed almost $1,800,000 to Wilmington organizations. In 2009, $136,307 was distributed between 41 grant recipients such as Good Shepherd, Guardian Ad Litem, Lower Cape Fear Hospice, Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard, Domestic Violence Shelter and Services, Habitat for Humanity, Coastal Horizons Center - Rape Crisis Center, Children's Home Society, Bellamy Mansion Museum, DREAMS Center for Arts Education, Cape Fear Museum of History and Science, Cameron Art Museum, Wilmington Symphony Orchestra, and the list goes on!
