Early Grant Information for NGOs

Community Enrichment Grants are usually awarded to support the direct costs of a charitable project or program (e.g., art supplies, medical equipment, educational materials, vehicles, program staff). These grants are paid on a reimbursement basis for actual costs incurred.

Community Enrichment Grants are awarded to projects that directly benefit all or a portion of the service area. The service area includes all of Dare County, and all Outer Banks communities, from Corolla to Ocracoke Island. They currently do not award Community Enrichment Grants for projects targeting mainland Hyde or mainland Currituck.

Schools and Government Agencies: Occasionally, schools and government agencies may be considered for Community Enrichment Grants, if it is demonstrated that financial support is not available from other sources. Schools and government agencies may also be eligible for certain Focus Grants. For Dare County schools.
Individuals: Community Enrichment Grants are never awarded to individuals.
Faith-Based and Religious Entities: The Outer Banks Community Foundation will consider Community Enrichment Grants to faith-based and religious entities, including churches, for projects that address the needs of the wider community. They will not award Community Enrichment Grants for projects that primarily seek to promote religious beliefs or attempt to recruit new members to a particular religion. They will generally not award grants to churches for projects or assets that would primarily benefit the members of a single congregation or religion.
The Outer Banks Community Foundation does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, age, gender, national origin, or disability.
