Louise Oriole Burevitch Endowment

The Louise Oriole Burevitch Endowment was founded by the noted Wilmington philanthropist, whose gifts are having a transformative effect on eastern North Carolina.

The North Carolina Community Foundation offers a competitive grants program from the Louise Oriole Burevitch Endowment in support of education, health and human services in eastern North Carolina.

Through the program, NCCF seeks proposals to support charitable organizations with programs, projects and general operations that serve eastern NC and focus on education, health or human services. Interested organizations should review the Request for Proposals for more information about eligibility and the application process.

NCCF will accept applications for this program once during 2024 with a cycle that opens on June 28, 2024 and closes at NOON on July 30, 2024. Awards will be made in October or early November.
