Foundation / Corporation
High Point Community Foundation (HPCF)
Grants of up to $50,000 to North Carolina nonprofits, churches, municipalities, and schools for programs that benefit the Greater High Point area. Programs may fall in the areas of education, food security, and community cohesion. Funding will be provided for capital support and program support for new or existing programs that address community opportunities or needs.
The Foundation particularly seeks out projects where a modest grant can make a significant impact.
1. Education – The Foundation especially seeks to support organizations that partner with, or directly support, the aims of Say Yes Guilford to make all local students college and career ready.
2. Food Security – The Foundation aims to support short-term hunger relief and long-term sustainability solutions to ending the causes of hunger.
3. Community Cohesion – The Foundation supports projects that bring the greater High Point community together and build a sense of civic pride and unity.
Other grant-making objectives are to:
- Support creative responses to existing or emerging community problems
- Support efforts that recognize and build on our community’s strengths and assets
- Reach a broad segment of the community by making grants for a wide range of purposes
- Address underlying causes rather than symptoms of problems
- Support projects that are preventative and farsighted rather than remedial
- Increase opportunities for people from low-income and underserved portions of the community
- Increase cooperation and coordination among program providers
- Leverage additional program support from other private and public funding sources
Note: Schools that are applying for a grant must have a project that will impact the entire school and not just a single classroom.

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: general operating support, 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.
All applications must be submitted no later than August 15, 2018. Grants are awarded once a year.
Only one grant request per organization is permitted. Nonprofit organizations can only receive grants from the Community Foundation for two consecutive years; after this, they must take one year off before they can apply again.
