Numerous North Carolina nonprofits receive grants
June 19, 2013
There are many foundations that give grants to preferred nonprofits on a cycle schedule. A few times each year, administrators announce that they have decided to extend a sizable amount of funds to numerous charities.
This was the case recently in North Carolina, where leaders at the Blanche & Julian Robertson Family Foundation approved 65 grants, according to the Salisbury Post. These gifts total more than $1 million and will be given to groups with goals in many different focus areas.
For instance, the newspaper detailed that some of the recipients include the Elizabeth Dole chapter of the American Red Cross, Godstock, Catawba College, Habitat for Humanity and the North Carolina Dental Health Fund, among numerous others.
The recipients have a number of different areas of concentration, much like the Robertson Family Foundation itself. Since its inception in 1998, the organization has given to many different charities located in North Carolina, from those that are centered around family issues, education initiatives, health projects and visual arts, among many other goals. The foundation tends to give to nonprofits that are dedicated to taking care of Salisbury and its citizens.
Organizations that are providing funds for multiple nonprofit programs might find it easier to manage their large-scale efforts with fundraising management programs that can account for funds as they are disbursed to recipients.
