Applying for grants

The 2022 grant application period for the Carteret Community Foundation will be open from Friday, July 22, 2022 to NOON on Tuesday, August 23, 2022. Grants from the Carteret Community Foundation typically range from $500 to $5,000. Grants are not available for regranting purposes, capital campaigns, capital improvements, out-of-state travel or for individuals.  In addition, the affiliate strongly prioritizes program/project applications; as such, funding may not be available for general operating support applications. The Foundation is seeking proposals from Carteret nonprofit organizations in support of the following purposes: 

  • Carteret County Unrestricted Endowment This fund enables the Carteret Community Foundation to respond to changing community needs and to enhance the quality of community life within the county through annual grants to local nonprofit organizations.
  • J. O. and Ruth Barbour Memorial Fund for Elementary Education in Carteret County Eligible applicants are Carteret County Public Schools. This fund supports reinforcement of Carteret County elementary school instruction in the basics, including reading, writing, arithmetic and penmanship; the acquisition of classroom equipment; compensation of elementary school teachers; and capital improvements to elementary school facilities (all for Carteret County public schools).
  • J. O. and Ruth Barbour Memorial Fund for Wildlife Habitat Conservation This fund supports conservation projects in Carteret County that would contribute to the preservation, maintenance, or reestablishment of woodland and other natural areas that provide suitable and desirable habitats for wildlife, with particular emphasis on birdlife.
  • Pearl's Pantry Fund This fund supports humanitarian needs of residents of Carteret County. Proposals for food, prescription medicines, clothing, housing, families in crisis or disaster relief will be reviewed (in that order).

All applications will be considered for funding from the Carteret Unrestricted Endowment. Nonprofit organizations may also select funding from additionally listed funds for which they meet the criteria.

  • If you have not already done so, you must read the guidelines before you apply. Failure to adhere to any of these guidelines may result in your application being excluded from consideration.
  • Training Module I will walk you through creating a profile; Module II shows how to add a grant application.
