Grants

Our partnerships with local non-profits are at the heart of WNC Bridge Foundation’s mission. Through grant-making we empower organizations that help people overcome the barriers preventing them from reaching their full potential. Pairing our resources with their expertise, together we are creating real and lasting change.

Our three grant programs are funded through WNC Bridge Foundation’s endowment investments.

NOW Grants: The application process is low-stress and simple, with a quick turnaround time for funding decisions. Grant awards are a maximum of $10,000. Learn More.

IMPACT Grants: WNC Bridge Foundation’s IMPACT Grant application process is closed and is not expected to open until 2025. However, other opportunities for IMPACT funding may become available, and WNC Bridge will make all announcements on our website and e-newsletter. Learn More.

AIM Grants: We are directing our attention to safe housing and food insecurity and working with selected partners to target outcomes that can create lasting change for the people of WNC. Over a three-year funding period, WNC Bridge Foundation will engage these partners through an invitation-only process.
