Grantee Spotlight: Legal Services of Southern Piedmont Receives Nonprofit Award

Legal Services of Southern Piedmont (LSSP), based in Charlotte, received the state's highest honor for nonprofits from the NC Center for Nonprofits.  The Nonprofit Sector Stewardship Awards recognize organizations that use exemplary nonprofit practices to be good stewards of the community's trust and funds.  The center presented this award to LSSP at its statewide conference in September.  LSSP has been a grantee of NC IOLTA since our first grant cycle in 1985 and has provided advice and legal representation to eligible individuals and groups in the Charlotte area and west-central North Carolina for 46 years.
