The board of advisors of the Moore County Community Foundation announces $109,191 in local awards from the community grantmaking fund and the John W. Roffe and Marjorie A. Roffe Endowment. 

Dawn Neighbors (NCCF regional director) thanking donors and present nonprofit organizations for their partnership and support.

This year the board will award:

Angie Tally (Authors in Moore Schools) delivering remarks about what Authors in Moore Schools will accomplish with their grant award.

“I always tell new people moving in to our county that you’re going to love it here,” said Tom Daniel of The Companion Animal Clinic of the Sandhills. “We’re not a county, we’re a community, and I think the Moore County Community Foundation is a premier representation of that.”

The awards reception was held at the Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities in Southern Pines. “This is my favorite day of the year,” said Ted Natt Jr., St. Joseph of the Pines community relations manager. “My favorite part about this day is that everyone has a story to tell and no two stories of the same–and every story benefits our community.” Natt Jr. indicated that St. Joseph of the Pines was going to use their grant funding to support their mobile rural health unit, which provides dental care across Moore County at no cost to the patients. “The best part of our job is learning more about these organizations and seeing the great work they do across the county,” said Ellen Airs, MCCF grants chair. 

Russell Sugg, MCCF board president, thanked the community for its support of the Moore County Community Foundation. “We are proud to support these nonprofit programs that are so important to our community,” he said. “We are grateful to the many generous individuals and organizations that have supported the Moore County Community Foundation and our work to inspire philanthropy across our community.”
