RALEIGH -- The North Carolina Community Foundation is now accepting grant applications for projects funded from its statewide Women’s Fund, according to Jennifer Tolle Whiteside, president and CEO.
Funds are available for nonprofit organizations that sponsor programming that supports women and/or families, with particular emphasis on women’s health and leadership issues. Programs must serve areas within the NCCF’s 67-county service area. (To find counties served by NCCF, visit www.nccommunityfoundation.org.)
Applications will only be accepted online at nccommunityfoundation.org and are due on or before Aug. 16, 2013. More information and training tools about using the online application are also available online. This year the fund will award a total of $10,000. Grant amounts typically range from $1,000 to $2,000. Grant recipients will be informed of the grants committee's decisions in September, 2013. The grants committee of the statewide Women’s Fund is comprised of representatives of the NCCF’s local women’s giving circles and other female community leaders from across North Carolina. NCCF supports regionally based giving programs across the state, including the Bertie-Hertford Women’s Fund; Women Givers of Northeast North Carolina (Camden, Gates, Pasquotank and Perquimans counties); the Currituck-Dare Women’s Fund; the Women’s Giving Network of Wake County; the Art of Giving in the Triangle; the Women Givers of Nash-Rocky Mount; the Women’s Impact Network in New Hanover County; and the Cary Women’s Giving Network.
