State: North Carolina
Counties: Chatham County (NC), Durham County (NC), Orange County (NC) or Wake County (NC)

For the SUN grants, the foundation will consider any eligible organization that meets a critical community need in their funding region. Successful applications will allow an organization to:
- Obtain essential equipment, technology, or resources whose need could not have been anticipated, for which there is no other source of funding, and without which the work of the organization would be severely hampered. (Ex: to obtain equipment necessary due to new regulations or other requirements.)
- Conduct emergency repairs of building structure or mechanical systems (heating/cooling, water service, etc.) whose sudden and unexpected failure interferes with the provision of services. (Ex: to remediate mold after a flood or cover cleaning and repair costs after a disaster that are not covered by insurance.)
- Otherwise address an emergency need that could not have been anticipated and for which there is no other source of funding (Ex: to expand program operations due to unexpected and dramatic increase in demand for services.)
