Community grant applications opening soon for nonprofit organizations

The Clemmons Community Foundation (CCF) will begin accepting applications for its next competitive grant cycle on Monday, Jan. 6, 2020.

CCF and its donors are invested in enriching services and resources that increase access, opportunity and an enriched quality of life for all residents where it matters most — right here at home. Charitable organizations that focus on strengthening our local community and building increased services that assist aging adult and seniors, as well as school-aged children and youth, are encouraged to apply.

Grants awards will range from $2,500 to $10,000.

501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations that have been in existence for at least three years as well as any government and public agency whose programs serve a charitable purpose may apply. All applicants must provide programs and services to Clemmons, Lewisville, and the surrounding communities. Individuals are not eligible to apply.

Prospective applicants are invited to attend a grants briefing session. The guidelines, software, review process and important changes to the foundation’s upcoming grant cycle will be reviewed. Attendance is recommended but not required; registration is available online. Briefing sessions will be offered from 10-11:30 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 10, 2020, and 3-4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 16, 2020, at the Historic Broyhill Building in Clemmons.

Grant applications must be completed and submitted online. To review the grant guidelines, RSVP for a briefing session, and to access the application, visit clemmonsfoundation.org, click “Apply” and select “Grants.”

Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Feb. 12 and are team-reviewed by community members. Decisions will be announced in late March.
