LINCOLNTON, N.C. – The Lincoln County Community Foundation is currently accepting applications for its 2023 grant program. Eligible organizations include 501(c)(3) publicly supported charities, churches and religious organizations, governmental agencies and educational institutions.
Grants will be awarded in support of a broad range of charitable purposes, but priority will be given to proposals that address a community need, specifically child services, education, food insecurity, housing, mental health or utility assistance. All proposed projects and programs must serve residents of Lincoln County.
Award amounts will be determined based on the merits of the proposed project and the Foundation’s available funds. Previous awards have ranged from $1,000 to $5,000, but for exceptional applications that will be beneficial to Lincoln County residents, the Foundation will consider larger requests.
To begin the application process, visit fftcgrants.communityforce.com and select “Lincoln County Community Foundation” to access the online application.
