NCCF awards nearly $6 million grants in ’13, $74 million over last 25 years

The North Carolina Community Foundation awarded a record number of 2,100 grants totaling $5.8 million in 2013, according to Jennifer Tolle Whiteside, CEO and president. During our first quarter-century, NCCF has administered more than $74 million in grants and scholarships for fundholders throughout North Carolina.

NCCF also administers scholarships, and has awarded $4.2 million directly to 3,200 students over the last 25 years. In 2013, NCCF awarded $579,286 in direct scholarships to allow students to pursue post-secondary educations. (A full break-down of grant categories and amounts is detailed at in NCCF’s online annual report.)

NCCF’s fiscal year ended March 31, 2013. All financials reported were reviewed by independent auditors Cherry Bekaert LLP. In addition to the grants reported as of fiscal year-end 2013, NCCF was honored to be asked to administer grants for two important programs offered by Duke Energy this year: one to North Carolina’s community colleges for workforce development; and one to social service agencies for energy assistance to low-income residents. NCCF will help to administer about $8 million in grants for Duke Energy when programs conclude later in 2014. 

“These grants make a significant impact on communities and the lives of many North Carolinians across the state,” Tolle Whiteside said.  “It is our honor and privilege to serve as stewards of this philanthropy.”
