Current funding opportunities for projects related to our five-year plan, Our Plan for Impact, 2013-2018, are detailed below.

Coalition Effectiveness

  • We are pleased to offer support for coalitions to improve their capacity to collaboratively address the needs of Wake County’s children. Our funding opportunity will prioritize funding to coalitions aligned with our Injury Prevention or Mental Health, Social and Emotional Well-being funding areas, though applications are welcome from coalitions working in Healthy Weight. Watch for the Request for Proposals.

Nonprofit Capacity Building

  • Our funding continues to focus on building the strength and sustainability of Wake County’s nonprofit organizations. We are excited to announce a shift in our approach by offering multi-year funding support with built-in peer support among awarded organizations. With the change in structure, applicants should pay attention to our refined eligibility and priority consideration criteria. Organizations may apply for funding in one of two tracks: 1) an Organizational Assessment/Capacity Building grant, or 2) a Capacity Building grant. Watch for the Request for Proposals.
