Local nonprofit organizations less then a month left to apply for the Lincoln County Community Foundationâ€™s available yearly grants.
Nonprofit groups will be chosen through an online application process. Registration must be completed on the Foundation for the Carolinas website by March 27 and applications submitted by noon on April 3.
Karen Coppadge, grants specialist for Foundation for the Carolinas, believes non-profit organizations are vital to the community.
â€œThey address local issues and provide services and programs that wouldnâ€™t exist without them,â€ she said.
Coppadge noted that the Lincoln County Community Foundation has awarded nearly $200,000 in charity funds since its start in 2001 and has assisted at least 25 different nonprofit groups in the county.
LCCF Board Chair Mollie Warlick said the Foundation ultimately seeks to improve the county.
â€œThe LCCF strives to help the nonprofits succeed in their missions for the betterment of Lincoln County,â€ she said. â€œIt is rewarding to see what past recipients have been able to accomplish with the grants they have received.â€
According to an LCCF press release, the organization remains â€œdedicated to increasing charitable giving and strengthening the communityâ€ by striving to meet local needs and â€œinspire philanthropy.â€ In addition, a Timken Foundation grant doubled the endowment fund two years ago.
