The Duplin County Community Foundation ‘s 2012 grant cycle opened on March 12, and it will be accepting online applications for the community grants program and the Duplin Foundation for Youth Advancement grant cycle.
Nonprofit, tax-exempt organizations are eligible to submit proposals in support of broad charitable purposes in the areas of arts and humanities, education, the environment, health, human services, public and societal benefit that serve the people of Duplin County. Grants are not available for families or individuals. Grant awards typically range from $500 to $1,000.
This year, the Foundation invites local nonprofit organizations that serve area youth to apply for a grant from the Duplin Foundation for Youth Advancement. Applications for these grants require a separate application as the grant criteria are significantly different from the community grants program. Grants are not available for capital campaigns, capital improvements or for individuals.
The application deadline for both programs is Friday, May 4, and the board will announce grant recipients in June.
