The John Rex Endowment’s work is guided by our Strategic Roadmap. 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. Our work is concentrated in two areas:

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

Throughout our work we are taking steps to be more strategic in the ways we support our nonprofit community. This approach brought us to the decision that for the remainder of 2021 we will not announce any new funding opportunities through the request for proposals process.

Our most recent RFP, which closed in May, Nonprofit Capacity Building Request for Proposals: Strategic Relationships is to help grassroots collaboratives assess their collaboration and to receive recommendations on how to strengthen partnerships. Priority consideration was given to Black/Latinx/Indigenous-led grassroots organizations.  Grants awarded under this RFP were made in June.
