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.
Community Grants are made annually through a competitive application process. The 2022 Community Grant Application Deadline was February 1st. Click here to complete a Community Grant Report.
