Community Grants are made annually through a competitive application process.
The Foundation currently concentrates its grant making on proposals from non-profit organizations that address Youth, Literacy, Education, Health, or Poverty in Davie County. Proposals must benefit the citizens of the county.
In an effort to strengthen community leadership, requests for Capacity Building and strengthening of non-profit organizations that impact these areas will be considered.
The 2021 Community Grant Application Deadline was February 1. 2021.
