Impact Guidelines

Note: Our 2021 IMPACT Grant cycle will open on 01/19/2021.

In keeping with our 2020 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 2021-December 2022. 

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

2021 IMPACT Grant Timeline Coming Soon: WNC Bridge Foundation understands your time is valuable, and the work you do is essential. Our goal is to ensure our grantmaking process is thoughtful and that we provide grants to organizations closely aligned with our mission. Based on past IMPACT Grant applicants’ feedback, we’ve simplified and even eliminated a few steps for our 2021 IMPACT Grant timeline. Check back in January 2021 for more details.
