The Capital Bank Foundation recently awarded Marbles Kids Museum in Raleigh a $75,000 grant to support expanded offerings in Aunt Polly’s Pet Shop, a play-based activity in the museum’s renowned financial literacy exhibit “Moneypalooza” that invites children to explore smart ways to earn, save and spend money. 

Five other North Carolina nonprofits in Charlotte, Greensboro and Winston-Salem received grants totaling $230,000 as part of the foundation’s community investment to promote prosperity in its primary markets. The Capital Bank Foundation was introduced earlier this year as part of the First Horizon Foundation. Over its 25-year history, the foundation has donated more than $80 million to help meet community needs. Learn more at
