Grants available from the Louise Oriole Burevitch Endowment

The NC Community Foundation is pleased to announce the opening of this year’s competitive grants program of the Louise Oriole Burevitch Endowment.

This program is the fourth annual competitive cycle from the Endowment, which supports nonprofit organizations serving education, health and human services in 41 eastern North Carolina counties.

The Foundation is offering a total of $500,000 in funding through this opportunity, and individual grant awards will range from $25,000 to $50,000. Some preference will be given to proposals benefitting women, the elderly, children and youth in southeastern North Carolina.

NCCF was honored to announce the establishment of the $20 million Louise Oriole Burevitch Endowment in 2015. The endowment has been granting to Burevitch’s named nonprofits since then, and in 2018, the fund’s growth permitted the launch of an opportunity for nonprofits to apply for grants from the fund. A list of previous grants made from this program can be found here.

“Mrs. B,” as Burevitch was known to her friends, was a Wilmington native whose generosity was well-known in southeastern North Carolina and beyond. The story of her philanthropy can be found here.
