Charitable organizations are invited to apply for financial support for local projects through the Montgomery County Fund. In its 19th year of grant making, the Foundation is pleased to have approximately $18,000 to award for philanthropic purposes in the arts, the environment, health, human services and other fields that benefit the communities of Montgomery County.
The Montgomery County Fund is one of 60 affiliates of the statewide North Carolina Community Foundation. MCF is a nonprofit, publicly-supported philanthropic institution that manages a pool of charitable funds whose income is used to benefit Montgomery County in grants to nonprofit organizations, educational programs and scholarships. Some funds are restricted by their donors to specific purposes or agencies, while others are donor advised and are not part of this grant cycle. However, together these funds reflect the diverse charitable interests of our community and enable the Montgomery County Fund to respond to a wide variety of organizations and programs. Local grants are made from the income of the grant making fund of the Montgomery County Fund.
Grant applications and grant instruction form are available online at www.nccommunityfoundation.org then visit Montgomery County/scholarships at the North Carolina Community Foundation. The deadline for applying is Wednesday, March 17th. Applications must be postmarked or in-hand on that date.
