Unrestricted Community Grants Cycle

A key role of The Community Foundation is to match donor funds with promising projects across Gaston County. To help accomplish this, we invite nonprofit organizations to bring us their best ideas on how they can improve the quality of life for our region's citizens. Through a careful review process, the Foundation's board and staff work together to award grants that strengthen the nonprofit sector with program and organizational support. In simplest terms, GCF grants are an investment in the future of our County. 

Our Unrestricted Community Grants Cycle is open. The deadline to submit an application is Thursday, July 11th by 11:59pm. Only applications submitted online will be considered. Before submitting an application please read our grant guidelines.
