2017 Grant Focus: Arts and Culture

All letters of inquiry and full proposals must be submitted electronically, using the North Carolina Community Foundation's online grant system. Below you will find instructions for how to do so, and a link to our online system. Be sure to read these instructions carefully before you begin.

First, you must create an account profile. For assistance with creating your account, please click here to view the training slides.

Once your profile is created, you will be directed to your dashboard. Click on the word "Apply" in the upper left-hand corner.

You will arrive at a page with information about applying for a grant from NCCF. In the upper right-hand corner, you will see an "Access Code" box. In that box, type the access code.  If you were not previously provided an access code, please contact Anne Sorhagen at asorhagen@nccommunityfoundation.org. Then, click on the Enter Code button. NOTE: The Access Code is case-sensitive.

The page will refresh, and a link to the online portal, titled "Women’s Impact Network", will appear. Click on that link to access the LOI form.

Click here to access our online application system. Additional information about the grants process will be available once you register. 

This program is using a structured LOI format that is much like a brief version of the full application. You will know you are in the right place if you see LOI in the upper left-hand corner. Follow the instructions to complete the form and submit it.

A printer-friendly version of the questions is available to you once you have set up an account and entered the portal for this program.

If you have questions about the program, contact Anne Sorhagen at asorhagen@nccommunityfoundation.org.

If you have technical questions regarding accessing and using the system, contact D'Wayne Wilkins at dwilkins@nccommunityfoundation.org.

Fund members use a collaborative decision-making process to provide grants to local 501(c) 3 charitable organizations that have a strong impact on critical and/or emerging needs in our community.  The Network will award grants to:

  • New or existing projects that provide a creative, substantive approach to a critical community need and/or address an emerging community issue.  

  • Projects that demonstrate the ability to achieve measureable results and have a high probability of successful continuation beyond the grant period.
