Grant to a High Point area, North Carolina nonprofit organization to prepare young children for success in school. Funding is intended to support children up to third grade through programs, networks, and systems that address domestic abuse, violence, mental health services for children, nutritional classes, parenting classes, tutoring and mentoring, the development of early childhood support services, and more.

This year, the High Point Community Foundation Grants Committee seeks applications for the Strategic Leadership Grant that will promote “Strong Starts—Safe Communities.” The Foundation is concerned about the ways that violence in homes and neighborhoods creates ecosystems of trauma that adversely affect children.

As a catalyst grant, the Foundation seeks applications that will develop new and innovative ways to address the challenges children face. While the grant can only be awarded to one 501(c)3 organization, the Foundation especially encourages grants that aim at system-level change, which requires collaboration across agencies and sectors.

The goal of the Strategic Leadership Grant is to focus the resources of the Community Foundation on a creative catalyst project that can move the needle on one of High Point’s most challenging issues. Through this multi-year grant, the Foundation intends to support a local organization that is being innovative, building coalitions, and creating the capacity of long-term change in the city.
