The Charlotte Mecklenburg Community Foundation
– the grantmaking arm of Foundation For The Carolinas – recently opened its Social Capital Grants cycle. Applications will be accepted from eligible 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations until Friday, Nov. 1, at noon.
The Social Capital Grants Program
aligns with the recommendations
of the Leading on Opportunity report. It is designed to support organizations and programs focused on building social capital networks, relationships and access to opportunities – through the lens of increasing economic opportunity for all children, youth and families within Charlotte-Mecklenburg.
The program will concentrate on supporting and strengthening organizations and programs that build and nurture social capital within and among communities and organizations. The program should promote a culture of caring and life navigation.
Maximum or minimum grant sizes have not been determined, however it is likely that grants awarded will range from $2,500 - $10,000. Larger amounts will be considered for exceptional proposals. To apply – or for complete criteria – please visit the online grants portal
and select Charlotte Mecklenburg Community Foundation in the Grant Program Name field.
CMCF announced last week it granted more than $800,000 to 37 local nonprofits for projects that focused on Family & Child Stability and Children, Youth & Young Adults. Visit www.charmeck-cf.org
