Request a Grant Writer

Grants to North Carolina nonprofit organizations, government agencies, congregations, and educational institutions in eligible locations for programs and initiatives that improve the quality of life for local residents. Funding is intended for programs that address a specific community need. Priority will be given to requests for projects that address food insecurity, child services, utility assistance, housing, and mental health. Proposals should improve the lives of citizens in Lincoln County.

Proposals for the impact awards are encouraged to identify additional funding sources and partnerships with other organizations. 

Projects and programs which clearly demonstrate their ability to attain measurable results will receive higher consideration. Grant requests are reviewed with the following questions in mind: 

  • What results are being invested in?
  • What are the chances that the Foundation will see these results?
  • Is this the best possible use of the Foundation's funds?
