Grants from the Carteret Community Foundation typically range from $500 to $2500. Other grant opportunities include the Pearl's Pantry Fund. Please see a complete description about Pearl’s Pantry Fund below.

Pearl's Pantry Fund  was established by V.J. "Puck" O'Neal in honor of his wife Pearl to provide grants to relieve hunger and lack of access to prescription medicines for less fortunate citizens of Carteret County. Mr. O'Neal did not want to supplant existing funding, but to expand the capacity of organizations meeting those needs for food and medicine. Only proposals for food, prescription medicines, clothing, housing, families in crisis or disaster relief will be reviewed (in that order). Proposals may be submitted by nonprofit organizations serving Carteret County. If an organization has ever received funding from the Pearl's Pantry Fund, please note that in the grant proposal description of your application and confirm that at least 90% of resources from the previous grant have been spent. Applications will be available July 22, 2016 and must be submitted by NOON on August 23, 2016. You may access the grant application through our online grants system. Grants from the Pearl's Pantry Fund typically range from $500 to $2,500. Total grantmaking typically does not exceed $5,000.
