The Board of Directors issued the 5n5 Community Impact Challenge in 2013 as a campaign for endowment to raise $5 Million over 5 years in Community Funds. These funds will allow the current Board and future Boards to meet the needs in Davie County. We know that challenges and opportunities today are different than they were 25 years ago and they will be different again in the next 25 years. An increase of $5Million in Community Funds equals an increase of $250,000 in grant dollars available every year to make a positive difference!
You can add any amount to the Community Impact Fund; start a named Community Fund as an Acorn Fund with $1,000 and grow it to an endowment ($5,000); or start a named Community Fund as an endowment with $5,000.
As the 5n5 Community Impact Challenge is met, the Board of Directors will increase the areas for competitive grant focus from Youth and Literacy to: Youth, Literacy, Education, Healthy Living, and Recreation – working toward a community where ALL live well! Many organizations and people will benefit from the expanded focus.
In short, increased Community Funds = a better Davie County!
