Grants ranging from $5,000 to $30,000 to Western North Carolina nonprofit organizations to help individuals with substance abuse, behavioral health, or intellectual and developmental disabilities. Applications are accepted from organizations in Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Swain, Macon, Jackson, and Haywood Counties.
The Foundation’s focus is improving the lives of those who have Mental Health, Developmental Delays, or Substance Abuse issues. Grant priorities include infrastructure to the private provider service network; start up and service provision grants; scholarships to enhance the quality of the provider network; public awareness/education; and advocacy on behalf of consumers and the provider network.
The purpose of the Foundation was to provide a place to hold funds that could later provide financial support of their mental health, developmental disability, and substance abuse services. In keeping with that purpose, the Foundation continues to provide this same support to the private service providers now responsible for all of the behavioral health, intellectual/developmental disability and substance abuse services in the seven western counties of North Carolina.
