Charitable organizations serving Wilkes County are invited to apply for financial support for local projects through WCF until the August 13 deadline.
Nearly $6,000 will be awarded in 2012 from three funds: the Bill Absher Memorial Endowment, the Kyle Hayes Memorial Endowment, and the Greater Wilkes Community Fund. These funds enable the community foundation to respond to changing community needs and to enhance the quality of life within the county through annual grants to nonprofit organizations.
The community foundation’s grant process is entirely online in 2012 and can be accessed at www.nccommunityfoundation.org. Select the Wilkes affiliate and follow the prompts. For those without computer or Internet access, local libraries have computers available for the public to use free of charge.
