CDCF and Women’s Giving Fund accepting grant applications

The board of advisors of the Currituck-Dare Community Foundation (CDCF) will be accepting grant requests beginning June 26 for nonprofit projects funded from its community fund, according to Janet Colegrove, board president.

Funds are available for nonprofit organizations that serve general charitable needs in Dare and Currituck counties.

Hannah Robinson, grants chair, said the CDCF generally focuses on nonprofits that support community needs. “We know that these grants will have a large and immediate impact on the work that they’re doing,” she said.

The Currituck-Dare Women’s Giving Fund, a program of the CDCF, provides grants to nonprofit organizations that serve the needs of women and children in Dare and Currituck counties.

Applications are available online only at the North Carolina Community Foundation’s website. Visit this page for more information and to apply online. Applications are due by noon Aug. 11. Only completed applications will be considered.

This year’s Duck & Wine Festival, CDCF’s annual fundraiser, earned more than $17,800 that was divided among its community grantmaking fund, Currituck Kids, Kids First and other nonprofit partners.
