The Davie Community Foundation serves to “provide pathways for caring people to leave a legacy that will shape the future of our community.”
We offer a variety of grant options that we believe will shape the future of Davie County:
Healthcare Grants (Application Deadlines June 30th and December 20th annually)
Staff Development Grants (Application Deadline is March 31, 2019)
Stella Ledbetter Rising Star Scholarship (Application Deadline is August 1, 2019)
Community Grants (Application Deadline was February 15, 2019)
Staff Development Grants are made annually through the Wendy & Mike Brenner Staff Development Fund. The purpose of the fund is to provide grants for the enrichment of teachers – workshops that will increase their knowledge base in a specific area. Grants will not be paid for course work or any expenses associated with furthering a degree.
Applications were due by 5:00pm on March 31st.
The Stella Ledbetter Rising Stars Scholarship was created by community members to remember a beautiful little girl who was an inspiration to the entire community. In the words of her parents, Jesse and Mindy Ledbetter, “Stella was an inspiration to us all. We see her every day in the stillness of the clouds and the rustling chimes. We feel her spirit in the air as it whispers through the trees and in the beauty that surrounds us. Stella was a gift to us all and she is continuing this gift through the Stella Ledbetter Rising Stars Scholarship.”
Applications are due by August 1st.
Community Fund 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.
Applications were due by 11:59pm on February 15, 2019
