Request a Grant Writer

Grants to North Carolina and South Carolina nonprofit organizations to improve the welfare of young children. Programs may promote high-quality child care services or provide early interventions for children who are at-risk. Requests for funding must fall within one of the following main focus areas:

1) Prevention and Early Intervention for At-Risk Children - Programs that focus on replicating evidence-based programs, (such as Incredible Years, or Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and building North Carolina and South Carolina’s capacity to implement evidence-based models.

2) Out-Of-Home Care - Programs that help the child welfare system improve well-being through better assessment and the exclusive use of high-quality providers that offer a range of services during and after care.

Funding is divided into three broad categories.

1) Replicating success grants reflect the value the Foundation places on proven programs and effective practices.

2) Proven programs are those with at least two randomized control trials with results demonstrating effectiveness that have been replicated in a real-world setting.

3) Effective practices are all other programs whose evidence of effectiveness consists of only one randomized control trial, comparison group data, pre- and post-test results or other types of data.

As the Foundation works to address persistent social problems, expand individual opportunity and provide essential support, value is placed on established approaches with clear records of success and replicable models, including:

-Multisystemic Therapy (MST)
-Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
-Positive Parenting Program (Triple-P)
-Strengthening Families
-The Incredible Years
-Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)

Other proven approaches will be considered as well.

Strengthening organizations grants reflects the Foundation’s commitment to building the infrastructure of effective organizations and institutions. In its efforts to improve facilities, systems, management and operations, the Foundation is particularly interested in supporting opportunities that show great promise for long-term gains.

Advancing innovation grants reflect the Foundation’s investment in projects that advance innovation when high-achieving, successful models are lacking.

Child Care works through accredited organizations and other nonprofit groups in North Carolina and South Carolina are eligible.

Annual deadlines are December 15 and June 15. The pre-application portal will open approximately six weeks prior to these deadlines.

The next pre-application deadline is December 15, 2016.

Within 30 days of receiving your pre-application, The Duke Endowment will either invite you to submit an application for the upcoming grant cycle, or inform you that your project does not align with current priorities, thereby concluding the process.
