The Community Grantmaking Program (CGP) is an open, competitive, discretionary program through which TCF provides funding to Triangle-based nonprofits.
Please note that there will be no fall 2012 grant cycle for CGP while we evaluate current community needs and how best to serve them.
With the implementation of our 2011-2014 strategic plan, TCF will convene local leaders to examine community challenges and opportunities to determine the future direction of the program.
CGP was established to increase funding available to Triangle nonprofits through a transparent, easy process, pursuant to the Foundation’s 2006-2010 Strategic Plan. After conferring with community leaders to study the needs of the Triangle, the Board adopted two focus areas: Youth Leadership & Development and Civic Engagement.
To date, the Foundation has granted more than $2 million through CGP since its inception in January 2007. We continue to support our local nonprofits through the 750 charitable funds that are administered by the Foundation.
We look forward to launching the next iteration of this community program in the near future. To be among the first to learn when the Foundation announces new grant guidelines and parameters for the program, subscribe to our e-news here.
