Grants of up to $50,000 to North Carolina nonprofit organizations, municipalities, schools, and churches in eligible locations to support the needs of the local community. Funding is available for programming and operation expenses. Eligible organizations must serve the Greater High Point area community.
The Foundation only considers requests from public charities.
- Non-profit (501c3)
- Church (501c3 or other)
Nonprofit organizations must have their own 501(c)(3) status by the deadline of the grant application.
Schools that are applying for a grant must have a project that will impact the entire school and not just a single classroom. They must also have the approval of their school principal.
The High Point Community Foundation does not make grants for the following: costs already incurred, endowments, loans or mortgages, sectarian purposes, political purposes, or to individuals. State wide or national programs will not be considered unless funding is sought for a portion of the program that directly benefits the greater High Point area.
Application deadline is August 1, 2023 by 5:00 PM . All applications must be submitted through the online portal.
Only one grant request per organization is permitted. The Grants Committee will allow multiple schools and multiple departments within a municipality to apply, but has the ultimate decision authority.
If a grant is made as a “matching grant” the Foundation will not release a check to the grantee until the match has been made.
- The maximum allowed will be $50,000 for grant requests both program and capital.
- During the review process, any grant request that the Committee cannot agree to fund to at least 50% of their total request will not be funded.
