The John Rex Endowment provides grant funding to Wake County nonprofits who share our desired impact that all Wake County children and their families are safe, healthy, and living to their full potential.

In March 2021 we will publish our competitive Nonprofit Capacity Building Request for Proposals (RFP) specifically related to organizations exploring enhancing their Strategic Relationships.  This funding opportunity aligns with our two funding areas: Nonprofit Capacity Building and Children’s positive social, emotional, and behavioral health and well-being.

Nonprofit Capacity Building

The intent of this opportunity is to help grassroots organizations with limited funding opportunities develop stronger partnerships, collaborations, and possibly mergers to maintain their missions during the ongoing economic impacts of COVID-19.

Upcoming dates:

  • Week of March 15: A Request for Proposals (RFP) detailing this Nonprofit Capacity Building funding opportunity on Strategic Relationships will be released.
  • Week of June 7: Grant awards will be announced.

Please watch the foundation’s website for our current funding opportunities.
