The North Carolina Community Foundation is now accepting grant applications for projects funded from its statewide Women’s Fund. Grants 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.
Applications will only be accepted online and are due on or before September 19, 2012. The application can be found here. The NCCF also provides online training tools for grant applicants to help them through the application process, which can be found here.
This year the fund will award a total of $9,000. Grant amounts typically range from $1,000 to $2,000. Grant recipients will be informed of the grants committee's decisions in November 2012.
The statewide Women’s Fund awarded grants in 2011 to Helping Hands Clinic in Caldwell County, Albemarle Hopeline in Elizabeth City, StepUp Ministry in Raleigh, the YMCA of Catawba Valley, the Down East Partnership for Children in Rocky Mount and the Chowan/ Perquimans Smart Start Partnership.
