Grants to North Carolina nonprofit organizations for projects in the areas of human services and the arts. Funding is intended to support specific innovative projects and may be used for equipment, technology, new or existing capital improvements, and program development and execution.
The Joy W. Pope Memorial Grant Program is an annual competitive grant opportunity for organizations in the arts and human services. Through this grant, the foundation seeks to foster innovation and model solutions across the Tar Heel State.
Regardless of what the project does, the end result should be a quantifiable gain for the organization and the people it serves. An innovative project would likely be one or more of the following:
There are two types of grants - the Joy W. Pope Grant in the Arts and the Joy W. Pope Grant in Human Services.
Joy W. Pope Grant in the Arts:
The Joy W. Pope Memorial Grant in the Arts is designed to recognize innovative projects in visual arts, performing arts, and literary arts that ultimately serve the greater community.
Joy W. Pope Grant in Human Services:
The Joy W. Pope Memorial Grant in Human Services is designed to recognize innovative projects across all spectrums of human service work (but not medical research). The John William Pope Foundation makes grants to nonprofit organizations who address both immediate needs (for example, hunger) and long-term needs (for example, learning opportunities). Ultimately, restoring people in crisis and shining a light on pathways to self-betterment ensures that future generations have the opportunity to prosper, both economically and socially.
