Community Outreach Grant

WNC Bridge Foundation recognizes there are many smaller WNC non-profit organizations whose good works have limited options to turn to for quick funding decisions.  Community Outreach Grants were created to address this gap in our region.  The application process is low-stress and simple with a quick turnaround time for the decision. 

Preference for Community Outreach Grants are given to non-profits who work in the Foundation’s focus areas of elder care, wellness support and youth development.  They are categorized into three areas: Outreach, COVID-19, and Support. 

Community Outreach Grants – What We Will Fund:

  • Outreach – grants of up to $2,500 provide funding for non-profits to use to promote their organizations through their events and outreach in communities they serve.

  • COVID-19-grants of up to $5,000 provide funding for non-profits to address a variety of needs or issues caused by COVID-19.

  • Support – Non-profit organizations can apply for 1-year grants ranging from $2,500 to $10,000 for supporting a range of projects, including but not limited to, equipment, facility repair, health-benefiting program, short-term pilot programs, bridge funding until a known revenue stream begins, or skill development training for staff.
