Funding for Nonprofits

The Scrap Exchange, Durham

Over our 30 plus year history, we have awarded millions of dollars in grants and scholarships. Grants from the Foundation are made through application based funding opportunities or at the request of a donor-advised fundholder.

Application Based Funding

Grants are available through the Foundation’s community programs and other competitive funding opportunities. Guidelines, priorities and standards of eligibility must be met in order to apply. Opportunities vary from year to year.

Grants from Donor-Advised Funds

Many grants are made from funds that do not accept requests. These funds are advised by donors to support causes they care about. After a comprehensive appraisal of the suggested organization, final approval is given by the Foundation’s board.
