The Community Foundation of the Dan River Region is now accepting proposals for its next round of grant making. The Community Foundation has awarded nearly $15 million in grants since it began in 1996.
Information has already been mailed to approximately 150 community non-profit organizations in Danville, Pittsylvania County, Caswell County and Halifax County. The Foundation is accepting Preliminary Request applications from 501(c)(3) charitable organizations until July 10, 2012. The Preliminary Request applications should include a brief overview of the proposed project. The Foundation’s Distribution Committee will then select which organizations to ask to submit full grant applications.
Approximately $570,000 is available for grants this year. This total includes a generous gift from the Danville Regional Foundation to benefit the residents of Caswell County, Pittsylvania County and the city of Danville. New this year, a $1,000 grant is available to Halifax County organizations, from the Fund for Halifax County.
The Community Foundation is a public charity established in September 1996 by a steering committee of civic leaders to meet a variety of social, educational, cultural and other charitable needs in the Danville, Pittsylvania County and Caswell County area, as well as Southern Virginia and Northern North Carolina.
