Cashiers Community Fund Grants

The Cashiers Community Fund (CCF) seeks to improve the quality of life in the greater Cashiers community by supporting projects that benefit the broad community and its residents. 

CCF provides grants between $2,500-10,000 to nonprofit organizations and public agencies for charitable purposes, including programmatic needs, capital campaigns, and operating expenses. At its discretion, the Cashiers Community Fund Advisory Board may also consider grant requests for greater or lesser amounts. Projects should be completed within one year of receipt of grant funds. 

Requests that exhibit the greatest community benefit (including requests addressing education; early childhood development; health and wellness; assisting people in need; community or economic development through the arts, culture and natural resources; or the environment) will be given the highest consideration.
