Request a Grant Writer

Grants to North Carolina nonprofit organizations, government institutions, congregants, and educational institutions in eligible regions for capital support and programs that benefit local residents. Funding is available in the areas of arts and culture, human services, recreation, economic development, and K-12 and post-secondary education. Programs must take place in Richmond County.

A project or program must have potential continuity through other funding sources in future years.

Program Grants

Priority will be given to local proposals that evidence volunteer leadership and/or grassroots participation and financial support. Projects will be evaluated on the basis of:

  1. Feasibility in terms of leadership and plan, 
  2. Significance in terms of the importance of the issue being addressed, and 
  3. The project’s potential for success.

Capital Grants for Land, Buildings, and Equipment

Priority will be given to proposals that demonstrate an organizational commitment in terms of leadership, financial support, and other resources. Priority will be given to “challenge grants” whereby other donors make matching gifts.
