Funds for the grants came from LCCF’s community grantmaking fund, the Oakland Fund, and the Warren and Barbara Perry Fund.

“This year our grant making decisions took into consideration the impact that the grant would have on the local community, especially the children and youth who reside in Lenoir County,” said Sandy Skirving, advisory board president of the Lenoir County Community Foundation. “Our affiliate board has been working hard to attract more donors. I want to thank the donors and the applicants who made our 2023 grants possible. We are building a stronger community with local leaders.”

LCCF is an affiliate of the North Carolina Community Foundation and is led by a local volunteer advisory board. Each year, LCCF uses dollars from its endowment funds to make grants to nonprofits that help the local community.
