We're a diverse group of young professionals promoting and supporting the Mint Museum through cultural, social, leadership, and fundraising activities and events. Established in 1990, we're the premier social arts organization for young professionals in Charlotte.

OUR MISSION 

To introduce members to the resources available at the Mint, and develop appreciation of the arts through a wide variety of programs including gallery openings, receptions, annual fundraising events, membership meetings and after-work educational seminars.

We make substantial donations of tangible and intangible goods to the Mint Museum each year. To date, we have made eight art acquisitions, which are held in the permanent collection of the Mint with credit to the Young Affiliates. We are also committed to raising funds to offset the cost of free school tours of the Mint Museum for school-aged children in Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools. These tours inspire a new generation of artists and art enthusiasts who will make Charlotte a more vibrant community.
