Clemmons Community Foundation announces 2020-2021 grant cycle

The Clemmons Community Foundation (CCF) announces the start of its 2020-2021 Competitive Community Grants Program for nonprofits serving Clemmons and Lewisville. The deadline for applications is Thursday, Oct. 1.

CCF and its donors are invested in enriching services and resources that increase access, opportunity, and an enriched quality of life for everyone in our communities. Earlier this year the foundation awarded more than $80,000 in grants to 12 local nonprofits as part of its competitive community grants for projects that benefit Clemmons and Lewisville in areas of interest including the arts, education, services and resources for seniors, access to critical medical treatments and care, and animal welfare.

This cycle, charitable organizations are invited to apply for a grant to support programming for school-aged children and youth or to support continued service delivery during the pandemic.

Grants are available up to $7,500.

Local 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.

Before starting an application for a grant, prospective applicants should first review the criteria and guidelines online at https://www.clemmonsfoundation.org/apply/grants.

Applications are team-reviewed by community members and decisions will be announced in early November.
