Congratulations 2021 IMPACT Grant Recipients
Now in its third year of regional grant funding, 90 local non-profits from across Western North Carolina are WNC Bridge Foundation’s 2021 IMPACT Grant recipients, with awards totaling $3,900,000.
Home repair for the elderly, access to dental care, and academic tutoring for youth are examples of how grant funding will impact communities across Western North Carolina.
First-time IMPACT Grant recipient, Horizons at Carolina Day will use grant funding to support its year-round academic programming, including a 6-week summer enrichment experience. Horizons seeks to stop summer slide in learning and close the achievement and opportunity gaps for students from underserved communities in Asheville. “The support that has come from WNC Bridge Foundation is such an important part of the success of Horizons at Carolina Day School, notes Horizons’ Board member, Lynne Froeba. “Each year, as more children join Horizons’ programming, there are considerable new, as well as existing expenses to support our children and their families. “Grants like the one we received from WNC Bridge are so necessary for the continued success of our organization.”
