The John Rex Endowment's Request for Proposals (RFP) is strategically developed in response to feedback from grant-funded partners and local organizations. We look forward to supporting work that aligns with John Rex Endowment’s mission — “to strengthen organizations that center racial equity and justice to improve the social emotional health of children living in Wake County.”  

This fall, the Endowment partnered with We-Collab and the Rev. Dr. Sterling E. Freeman, Co-Founder of CounterPart Consulting to host a series of community restorative workshops and training sessions for leaders identifying as Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and other People of Color who were interested in networking and exploring an opportunity to collaborate with one another. This initiative helped us build a foundation for the Endowment's upcoming funding opportunity. 

We are pleased to announce that the Strategic Collaboration Impact Award RFP will be available in January 2023.

We will host several community webinars for those interested in learning more about the Endowment's Strategic Collaboration Impact Award RFP, to be released in January 2023. These webinars are open to the public regardless of eligibility.
