Funding Opportunities Announced for Winter Grant Award Cycle

The John Rex Endowment has new funding available for projects related to the following two goals from our five-year plan, Our Plan for Impact, 2013-2018: Positive Mental Health and Nonprofit Capacity Building

For the Positive Mental Health goal, funding is directed toward developing and enhancing the contribution of Wake County children's places and spaces to the positive mental health of children.  Specific strategies of interest are detailed in the Positive Mental Health Request for Proposals.

For the Nonprofit Capacity Building goal, funding is focused on building the strength and sustainability of nonprofit organizations that support Wake County children in living healthy lives. Three types of support are available for as detailed in each respective Request for Proposals.  

Expansion Grant applications will also be accepted for projects that build or expand on a prior John Rex Endowment assessment, planning, or implementation grant.  Requirements and guidelines are outlined in our "Guidelines for Expansion Grant Applications."

Deadlines are outlined in each request for proposals. If you have questions about these funding opportunities or our online grant management system, contact Kate Shirah at or 919-838-1183
