The North Carolina Community Foundation is honored to partner with our fundholders to offer a robust grants and scholarships program across the state. Awarding grants and scholarships strengthens North Carolina communities and is fundamental to our mission. We’re proud that our grants and scholarships impact every corner of the state and beyond.


NCCF is privileged to administer grants on behalf of fundholders to support charitable organizations doing important work across North Carolina. Many of our competitive grants programs are awarded in partnership with our statewide network of local affiliate foundations and giving circles. We steward other important grantmaking for regional programs, corporate clients and in times of disaster.


NCCF is proud to partner with fundholders to administer hundreds of scholarship opportunities across North Carolina. All our scholarship opportunities are made from specific funds with criteria established by the original donor.
