The board of advisors of the Yadkin County Community Foundation (YCCF) announces the opening of its 2012 grants cycle. Charitable organizations are invited to apply for financial support for local projects through YCCF until the April 9 deadline.
In its 12th year of grant making, the YCCF has up to $1,980 to award for 2012, with contributions from two funds: the Yadkin Legacy Fund and the Dr. William L. Wood, Sr. and Pauline “Polly” Hudspeth Wood Endowment Fund.
Proposals are being accepted for nonprofit programs that support the arts, environment, health, human services and other charitable initiatives that benefit Yadkin County.
The community foundation’s grant process is entirely online again in 2012 and can be accessed at www.nccommunityfoundation.org/grants. Select the Yadkin affiliate and follow the prompts. For those without a computer or Internet connection, local libraries have computers available for the public to use free of charge.
The Yadkin County Community Foundation is an affiliate of the statewide North Carolina Community Foundation (NCCF). YCCF was created in 1999 and has 14 endowment funds.
The NCCF is the single statewide community foundation serving North Carolina and has made nearly $63 million in grants since its inception in 1988. With more than $145 million in assets, the NCCF sustains 1,000 endowments established to provide long-term support of a broad range of community needs, nonprofit organizations, institutions and scholarships. The NCCF partners with 60 affiliate foundations to provide local resource allocation and community assistance in 67 counties across the state. An important component of the NCCF’s mission is to ensure that rural philanthropy has a voice at local, regional and national levels.
