The Iredell County Community Foundation is currently accepting applications for its 2020 grant program from eligible Iredell County organizations, including 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, congregations, governmental and educational institutions.

Priority will be given to requests for projects and programs that address workforce development, literacy for children ages 5 to 10, or veterans affairs.

Please note, the foundation will consider requests enabling the grantee to seek grant support from other funders.

Priority will be given to proposals requesting one-time funding to initiate projects and programs. A small number of requests that fall outside of these priority investment areas will also be considered.

To begin the application process, grant seekers are invited to visit the Online Grants Center at https://fftcgrants.communityforce.com and search for Iredell County Community Foundation to access the online application.
