Treasurer’s office could have a stack of your money
By Hannah Mitchell CHARLOTTE — Unlike many nonprofit arts organizations, Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte is operating in the black, but by only $285. So when Executive Director Dan Shoemaker heard the theater company was getting an unexpected $123, the news brightened his day. “Every little bit helps in these days,” he said. The organization’s minor windfall is one of many in a little-known state fund of unclaimed cash totaling nearly $600 million. Businesses, individuals and organizations such as Shoemaker’s have rights to the money, but few appear to know about it.
