Grants and scholarships season kicks off (February 2018)

Community grantmaking through our local affiliate foundations and our annual scholarships season has begun for 2018. NCCF is thrilled to continue these vital programs in communities across North Carolina. Grants and scholarships are the cornerstone of the Foundation and the driving force behind our mission to inspire philanthropy.

Community grants cycle calendars are again available on our website’s community grantmaking page. Affiliate grant amounts and guidelines are posted on the affiliates’ respective pages on our website. Click here to find the affiliate serving your area, then click on “Applying for grants” in the left-hand column. Online tools for grantseekers and grant reviewers also are available on our website.

Scholarships season details, tools and application information link from our website’s scholarships page. Applicant deadlines range from February to May. NCCF is proud to administer scholarships programs on behalf of our fundholders. Last year we awarded nearly $800,000 to more than 350 students. We invite you to get to know some of our NCCF Scholars, profiled on our website here.


February is also a month during which we send out quarterly fund statements to show how funds have performed over the past three months, as well as information about recent market activity. This mailing also will contain information about ATD (available to distribute or grant) amounts and nccfnotes.

Donor advised fundholders, affiliate grants chairs, agency fund administrators or scholarships administrators will soon receive information on their funds’ ATD for next fiscal year, important dates and deadlines to remember and contact details for more information.
