Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $50,000 to North Carolina nonprofit organizations 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. 

The Foundation knows 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.
