The Community Foundation of the Dan River Region is now accepting proposals for its next round of grant making. This is the thirteenth year the Foundation has awarded discretionary community grants, with over $7.7 million having been distributed so far.

Information has already been mailed to approximately 300 community non-profit organizations in Danville, Pittsylvania County and Caswell County. The Foundation is accepting Preliminary Request applications from 501c3 charitable organizations until July 23, 2009. 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.

With the help of a generous gift of $500,000 from the Danville Regional Foundation, the Community Foundation will have over $800,000 available for grants this year. Up to 50% of the Danville Regional Foundation funding will be earmarked for healthcare and human services.

The Community Foundation of the Dan River Region is again accepting grant proposals June 11, 2009.
