2020 Impact Grants

In keeping with our initial 2019 grants, we will continue to grant in the areas of elder care, wellness support, and youth development.  Grant awards begin at a minimum of $10,000 and the project should take place within the timeframe of November 2020-December 2021. 

We Will Fund:

  • Public charities described in section 501(c)(3)
  • Units of government for public purposes (including Native American tribal governments)
  • Other types of non-profit organizations or organizations so long as the grant furthers the Foundation’s charitable purpose
  • Organizations located in any 18 WNC counties
  • Capital, program and operating grants
  • New or existing programs
  • Collaborative efforts

We want to engage and learn from our non-profit partners in all 18 WNC counties and welcome organizations to begin the process by:

  • attending (not required) a listening session in February 2020
  • completing our required online eligibility quiz by March 31, 2020.
  • if requested, speak to a Program Officer about your project(s)

In early April, non-profits will be notified if they will be invited to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) and will be informed of the subsequent process for applying. Decisions will be made in October 2020.
