Apply for a Grant

Select 501(c)(3) organizations in North Carolina and South Carolina may be eligible for grants in one of our four program areas: Child Care, Health Care, Higher Education and Rural Church

The following are ineligible for funding:

  • Individuals
  • Organizations without a presence in North Carolina or South Carolina
  • Organizations with any legal status other than 501(c)(3)
  • Organizations that focus on areas other than child care, health care, or rural churches
  • Institutions of higher education other than Davidson College, Duke University, Furman University and Johnson C. Smith University

Deadlines

  • Child Care: June 15 and December 15 (pre-application). 
  • Health Care: June 15 and December 15 (application)
  • Rural Church: August 12 and March 17 (pre-application)
  • Higher Education: Staff in the Higher Education program area works with the four eligible grantees to determine when grant requests may be submitted. Typically the Endowment's Trustees consider new requests from these schools two to three times per year.

Grant Application Guidelines

Our grant application process has been redesigned to make it more streamlined and intuitive. Rural Church grantees were introduced to this change in 2013, which led to more effective applications.
