Local nonprofits are invited to a grants workshop on Thursday, July 12 from 1pm to 3pm at UNC’s Coastal Studies Institute on Roanoke Island. At the workshop, our executive director, Lorelei Costa, will provide an overview of our Community Enrichment Grants Program, and answer questions about our expanded grants criteria.
In late June, the Community Foundation announced a significant expansion of our flagship grants program: Effective immediately, the Community Foundation is now awarding grants to include nonprofit staff wages. This is in addition to our traditional focus on funding tangible items, one-time costs, capacity-building endeavors, program scholarships, and capital assets and improvements.
Nonprofits can apply online now to the newly expanded Community Enrichment Grants Program. The next deadline is Friday, July 27, 2018, and the last deadline of the year is Friday, October 26.
