The Stanly County Community Foundation is accepting applications for its 2021 grant program. Eligible applicants include 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, congregations, governmental and educational institutions.

The Foundation looks for effective programs and strategies that address community needs and will prioritize requests which focus on arts and culture, education and human services.

Funding requests which fall outside of these areas will also be considered. Proposed projects or programs must serve residents of Stanly County.

Award amounts will be determined based on the merits of the proposed project. Previous awards have ranged from $1,000 to $5,000, but the Foundation will consider awards up to $10,000. Proposals for larger grant awards are encouraged to identify additional funding sources and partnerships with other organizations.

To begin the application process, visit and select “Stanly County Community Foundation” to access the online application. Returning applicant organizations can log in to the Online Grants Center using their previously established ID and password. First-time applicant organizations can create a new account.

Completed applications must be submitted by noon March 26. The online grant application
closes promptly at 12 p.m. and will not accept late submissions.
