Donor Name: The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina
State: North Carolina
County: Rutherford County (NC)
Type of Grant: Grant | Endowment
Size of the Grant: $1000 to $10,000

Grants of $2,500 to $10,000 will be made to nonprofit organizations and public agencies for charitable purposes, including programmatic and capital needs. Applications for general operating support may be accepted but generally will be given low priority. Requests that exhibit the greatest community benefit (including requests addressing education; early childhood development; health and wellness; assisting people in need; arts, culture and natural resources; or the environment) will be given the highest consideration.
- If an organization other than the applicant will benefit from the grant, then the applicant should include a letter of endorsement from that organization.
- Grant funds should be expended within one year of the award.
- Grants may be awarded to qualified 501(c)(3), governmental, educational, and religious organizations serving Rutherford County with a documented history of substantial work in Rutherford County that pre-dates the application.
- An eligible organization may only submit one application per year.
Grants generally do not support: annual giving campaigns, endowment funds, deficit funding or debt retirement, sectarian religious purposes, partisan political purposes, private primary and secondary schools (except for projects or programs that are not directed toward the school’s students or staff and that directly address community needs) and private clubs, or activities taking place or expenses incurred before grant decisions are made.
