You can help build our community’s future.
We’re building a better future for our Outer Banks, one donation at a time. You don’t have to contribute millions to be a part.
In 2020, we awarded more than $100,000 in grants from our Community Fund to diverse nonprofits across the Outer Banks, including OBX Room in the Inn, Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation, Network for Endangered Sea Turtles, Pea Island Preservation Society, Saving Lives Task Force, and many others. Also in 2020, COVID Rapid Response Grants supported groups like Interfaith Community Outreach, Beach Food Pantry, Children and Youth Partnership, Community Care Clinic of Dare, Coastal Humane Society, and Food for Thought. View our current Annual Report to learn more about our recent Community Fund grants.
But your annual membership gift goes even beyond that. The Community Funds helps support everything we do at the Community Foundation, from scholarships, to disaster relief and recovery, to supporting our nonprofits through free workshops, to all of our diverse grants. Simply put, your membership gift keeps our office doors open and our charitable funds flowing.
Please join us in changing lives and enriching our beloved community with a generous membership donation. Thanks so much for your support and for your tremendous heart for our community!
