Actual award amounts will be determined based on the merit of the project and available funds. The most common award amount since the Foundation began awarding funds is $2,000. Most previous awards have been between $1,000 and $5,000, but for the most competitive applications, the board will consider awards up to $10,000. Proposals for larger grant awards are encouraged to identify additional funding sources and partnerships with other organizations.
Grants must be awarded to eligible organizations including 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, congregations, governmental and educational institutions for projects that will serve the residents of Stanly County.
