Sources of our Grant Funds
As a community foundation, we serve many constituencies and fund a wide range of initiatives, organizations and projects. From July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012, The Community Foundation distributed more than $11 million, money enabling good work in many communities.
We actively manage more than 960 funds, each created by an individual, family, corporation or nonprofit. The types of funds and the sources of our grantmaking funds at 6/30/2012 are illustrated in this chart.
Last year, nonprofits received $2.6 million through our Foundation’s competitive grant programs, those for which funding decisions are made by CFWNC board, staff and other advisors.
Grants recommended by our donors from their donor advised funds comprise $8.5 million of the total amount distributed this fiscal year. Generous community-minded citizens are having a tremendous impact through their partnerships with the Foundation.
