Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $50,000 to North Carolina nonprofit organizations, municipalities, schools, and churches in eligible locations for support during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. Funding is intended to assist organizations that have been negatively impacted by the pandemic, or that require vital financial assistance as they respond to the current needs of the local community. Funds must serve the Greater High Point area community.

The COVID-19 crisis resulted in a surge of needs throughout the greater High Point area. This year HPCF intends to fund requests for operating costs, supplies, emergency relief, and vital personnel. 

It is known that this crisis has not affected the community equally. Health, racial, and economic disparities have only been exaggerated by the crisis, so the Grants Committee will place special emphasis on requests that intend to serve the populations who have been most adversely affected by Covid-19. The Grants Committee will also place emphasis on grant requests that demonstrate the organization that is actively listening to and involving the people it serves in the decision it makes.

Estimated Size of Grant:

- 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.

Term of Contract:

The Foundation does not make repeat or multiple year grants.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The Foundation only considers requests from public charities: nonprofits (501c3), churches (501c3 or other), municipalities, or schools. 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 seeks to provide critical funding to the nonprofits that have been adversely impacted by the crisis, and/or on the frontlines responding to the needs in the community.

No capital requests will be funded this year.

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.

Pre-Application Information:

All applications must be submitted no later than June 30, 2021. 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.

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.

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.

For Grantmaking Restrictions, see Instructions and Guidelines, in Supporting Documents, below.
