About JCCF’s grantmaking

Founded in 1992, the Johnston County Community Foundation is led by a local volunteer advisory board. Each year, JCCF uses dollars from its endowment funds to make grants to nonprofits that help the local community.

The Nan Ogburn Cullman Education Endowment, part of JCCF's Family of Funds, supports public education in Johnston County in the areas of art, travel and leadership. This program typically accepts applications in August, with awards made in November. More information is available on our website.
