What We Fund

For Nonprofits

During the Community Grant Cycles only, the Clemmons Community Foundation invites and encourages letters of intent from tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations that address one or more of the following broad categories with transformational solutions to community needs and interests. Importantly, the foundation welcomes programs and projects that also strengthen a sense of community. The next community grant cycle will occur in the beginning fall of 2021.

> Community Development and Engagement (especially activities that strengthen a sense of community)
> Education Readiness, Enrichment, and Support toward a meaningful career
> Economic Security and Opportunities
> Sustainable Agriculture and Natural Resource Stewardship
> Health and Wellness
> Arts and Culture (that contributes to a vibrant community)
> Animal Welfare in Our Communities

Note: One Field of Interest fund places priority on programs and initiatives targeting services for seniors and needy children.

> Fundraising events, sponsorships, memberships, advertising, or promotional products
> Capital, endowment, or annual campaigns
> Activities that do not demonstrate measurable, sustainable impact
> Clubs, sports teams, or other services limited to a select membership
