Community Grants

The Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro awards community grants to nonprofits that support a wide range of issues facing people in our area. Typically, these are one-time grants to help nonprofits in the Greater Greensboro area build their capacity to more effectively achieve their missions.

The Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro will conduct one Community Grants Program cycle in 2020 with the focus on capacity building of nonprofits. Proposals will be reviewed by the Community Foundation Grants Committee and then shared with our donor-advised fundholders so that they may consider funding through their new Giving Together service.

Through Giving Together, we seek to increase impact by pooling donor and foundation resources to support strong organizations and collaborations making a difference in our community. By encouraging collective giving with our generous fundholders for critical issues, we can better support a strong ecosystem of nonprofit organizations in our community. The nonprofit partners highlighted through Giving Together are doing critical work in our community helping people in need.

The Community Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of the Beyond Resilience 2021 Program and is currently requesting letters of interest from Guilford County nonprofits. This initiative is designed to help nonprofits build back from the effects of the COVID pandemic. Beyond Resilience is a partnership of the Guilford Nonprofit Consortium and Guilford County area funders. LOIs may be submitted through the CFGG grant application portal.
