The Columbus County Community Foundation's 2012 grant cycle is now closed, and the board will announce grant recipients in July.
This year the Foundation requested grant proposals in the areas of arts and humanities, education, the environment, health, human services, public and societal benefit, and youth development. Grants are available for non-profit, tax-exempt organizations, religious institutions and government agencies with specific projects addressing these needs in Columbus County. Funds are not available for individuals, capital campaigns or capital improvements. Grants typically range from $200 to $1,000.
