Unrestricted Competitive 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 staff and board work together to award grants that strengthen the nonprofit sector with program and organizational support. In simplest terms, CFGC grants are an investment in the future of our County.
