Affiliate grantmaking set to begin

Community grantmaking begins in February for several of our affiliates and will continue throughout the year. Community grants cycle calendars are again available on our website’s community grantmaking page in two versions: both by the opening dates of each cycle and also alphabetically by affiliate name.

Information about the types and sizes of grants typically contributed by our affiliates is posted on their respective pages on our website. Click here to find the affiliate serving your area, then click on Applying for grants.

NCCF remains committed to making the community grantmaking process as easy and seamless as possible.

The online grantmaking process for both applicants and reviewers enters its fourth year in 2014. Online tools for grant seekers and grant reviewers are in the process of being updated and will be available soon.

As in previous years, NCCF regional associates will host grant-seeker workshops in many counties we serve throughout the state. These will be announced on our website, through social media outlets and also in local news media.

Scholarship season kicks off in February

Scholarship season also begins in February. Complete details, tools and current application information link from our website’s scholarship page. Applicant deadlines range from February to early June. 

NCCF is proud to administer the scholarship program on behalf of our fundholders. In 2013, we awarded nearly $590,000 to more than 300 students. More than 100 of last year’s scholarship recipients are first-generation students, according to Leslie Ann Jackson, director of grants and scholarships. She has a new program in the works to focus on these special students. We also plan to continue to profile NCCF scholarship recipients through an ongoing web feature. Visit this page to see some of the deserving students who have been featured to date!

Fundholder info distributed soon; ATDs up again!

Year-end 2013 fund statements and documents explaining this year’s grants process are currently being prepared and will be sent in mid-February.

Top of mind with NCCF fundholders is ATD, or what funds they will have “available to distribute” to grant seekers this year. ATDs are currently being calculated, and NCCF Director of Finance John Hartley anticipates that most funds administered by the Foundation will enjoy increased ATDs in 2014.
