Foundation for the Carolinas

The Foundation for the Carolinas was established in 1958 as a "community" foundation to serve the Central Piedmont area of North and South Carolina. Accordingly, most of its grant monies are distributed to organizations in that geographic area. Most of the Foundation's affiliated community foundations have competitive grantmaking programs which support numerous vital programs in their communities. Grantmaking is overseen by local governing boards comprised of volunteers who are knowledgable about their communities' needs.

The Foundation generally does not fund requests from outside our service area, from non-qualified charities, or from individuals; or for ongoing operating budgets; books, movies, videos or other publications; conferences or travel expenses; small businesses, business start-up or advertising. In Mecklenburg County, capital expenses including computers or automobiles/vans, and charter schools are not funded.

Please let me know if your chapter is interested in applying for a grant from this funding source.
