The Onslow Caring Communities Foundation will begin its 2011 grant application cycle on Monday, February 28, and the application deadline will be April 22, 2011.

“The Onslow Caring Communities Foundation is ‘celebrating’ its ninth year of community grantmaking by unveiling a new, online grant application process,” said board president Steve Wangerin.

“The new system is very intuitive, and it should make it a lot easier for local nonprofit organizations to apply for grants from the Onslow Caring Communities Foundation,” he said.

A representative from the North Carolina Community Foundation will demonstrate the new grant application process on Thursday, February 24, 10:00-11:00 a.m.., in the ITS Classroom, Jacksonville City Hall, 815 New Bridge Street, Jacksonville, NC. 

The demonstration is free, but registration is required because of limited seating.  Please email or call 910-509-7256 by Wednesday, Feb. 23, to register for the demonstration.
