Community Foundation of Randolph County is seeking applications for COVID-19 Response Fund Program to provide funding to non-profits needing assistance.
The funding would be delivered to those non-profits for emergency response needs focused on providing basic food, clothing, shelter, addiction management, and safety for those made more vulnerable to disease due to their circumstances.
The Community Foundation of Randolph County makes grants to increase the capacity of Randolph County’s not-for-profit organizations to respond effectively to the needs of the community.
In addition, the field of interest funding is available on a limited basis for the areas of:
- Arts and culture;
- Civic and community development;
- Environmental and historic preservation;
- Health and human services;
What they fund?
In general, the Foundation prefers funding for:
- Start-up costs for new programs;
- One-time projects or needs;
- Capital needs beyond an applicant’s capabilities and means.
What they do not fund?
The Foundation will not normally consider grants from the Community Enrichment Fund for the following purposes:
- Individuals other than scholarships (separate applications exist for scholarship programs).
- Organizations for religious or sectarian purposes.
- The make-up of operating deficits, post-event or after-the-fact situations.
- Endowment campaigns.
- For any propaganda, political or otherwise, attempting to influence legislation or intervene in any political affairs or campaigns.
- Services such as fire, police, schools, parks, etc. are the responsibility of the government and tax supported.
In addition, the Foundation board is reluctant to approve grants to any organization for the purpose of maintaining an on-going operating budget or for multi-year grant requests. (Please contact the Foundation office before submitting a multi-year grant request). However, exceptions to this may be made at the discretion of the Board.
Who they fund?
- The Foundation makes grants to tax-exempt 501 (c) (3) organizations operating or proposing to run programs for the benefit of Randolph County residents.
