Grants to North Carolina nonprofit organizations in eligible locations for programs, projects, and initiatives that benefit the African-American community. Funding is intended for activities within the focus areas of education, poverty, jobs and wages, and civic engagement, as well as criminal justice reform and racial justice efforts. Eligible programs benefit the Black community in Forsyth County.

Impact Grants may be used for general operating expenses and/or a specific program or project. The Grants Committee will make decisions based on eligibility, current and potential impact of the organization/project, and demonstrated dedication and passion for the work.

Strong preference will be given to:

  • Black-led groups/organizations (organizations with more than 50% of Black staff in leadership positions and/or more than 50% of board members are Black)
  • Organizations and programs that work within predominately Black neighborhoods (including 27101, 27105, and 27107).
