The John Rex Endowment’s work is guided by our Strategic Roadmap, launched in 2019. It reflects what we have learned and how we will meet our desired impact that all Wake County children and their families are safe, healthy and living to their full potential.

In December 2019 the Board of Directors approved two funding areas, aligned with the Strategic Roadmap:

  • Children’s positive social, emotional, and behavioral health and well-being
  • Nonprofit Capacity Building

As we strive to bring positive change to children, we believe these two funding areas are the most promising in which our work can make the greatest impact.

All of the Endowment's competitive grant cycles are listed in our Grant Award Cycles. Announcements of our grant funding opportunities are posted in Current Funding Opportunities.
