Community grants available from the Clay County Community Foundation (July 2020)

The board of advisors of the Clay County Community Foundation is accepting grant applications from nonprofits serving needs in the local community.

Funds are available for nonprofit organizations serving the local community in Clay County and will be awarded from the community grantmaking fund. Grants are a minimum of $500. Total grantmaking will not exceed $3,600 this year.

Due to the impacts of COVID-19 on our community, the board has made the strategic decision to prioritize grant applications submitted by organizations significantly impacted by the pandemic. Other organizations not responding to the impact of COVID-19 will still be considered for potential funding.

Applications are available online beginning July 17. Visit this page for information about applying. The deadline for applications is noon Aug. 18.

Grants are not available for regranting purposes, capital campaigns, capital improvements, out-of-state travel or for individuals. Funds are awarded by the board of advisors of the Clay County Community Foundation, an affiliate of the North Carolina Community Foundation.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for our nonprofits to expand their impact in our local community,” said Bill Breedlove, CCCF board president. “We are excited to partner with our local nonprofit community to continue supporting Clay County.”
