AND WOMENS GIVING CIRCLE FUND
ACCEPTING GRANT APPLICATIONS
The board of advisors of the Currituck-Dare Community Foundation (CDCF) will be accepting grant requests beginning July 4 for nonprofit projects funded from its community fund, according to Janet Colegrove, board president. Funds are available for nonprofit organizations that serve general charitable needs in Dare and Currituck counties.
Hannah Robinson, grants chair, said the CDCF generally focuses on nonprofits that support community needs. “We know that these grants will have a large and immediate impact on the work that they’re doing,” she said.
The Currituck-Dare Women’s Giving Fund, a program of the CDCF, provides grants to nonprofit organizations that serve the needs of women and children in Dare and Currituck counties.
Applications are available online only at the North Carolina Community Foundation’s website. Visit nccommunityfoundation.org for information about applying online. The CDCF grant cycle is July 4-Aug. 19 at noon.
This year’s Duck & Wine Festival, CDCF’s annual fundraiser, earned about $20,000 that was divided among its community grantmaking fund and the following nonprofits: Food for Thought, Friends of Jockey’s Ridge, Historic Jarvisburg Colored School and Currituck County Extension Agency.
The CDCF is an affiliate of the North Carolina Community Foundation. The community fund was established to help support local charitable needs through annual grants. In addition to Colegrove and Robinson, Currituck-Dare Community Foundation board members are: Jim Troutman, vice president, Vivian Simpson, treasurer, Patty Guillaume, secretary, and Lynne Alterman, Karen Etheridge, Sarah Banks, Nancy Procter, Linda Algood, and Fran Grossman.
