New Funding Available in Coalition Effectiveness and Nonprofit Capacity Building

This year the John Rex Endowment welcomes letters of intent that are in response to two of the goals as described in our five-year plan, Our Plan for Impact, 2013-2018. Letters of intent for our Fall Grant Award Cycle are due Tuesday, June 12, end of day (11:59 PM ET).

Coalition Effectiveness goal: We are pleased to offer support for coalitions to improve their capacity to collaboratively address the needs of Wake County’s children. Applicants must have an explicit focus on children’s health and well-being as related to our funding areas: 1) children’s healthy weight, 2) children’s mental health, social and emotional well-being, or 3) preventing childhood injury. See the Request for Proposals.

Nonprofit Capacity Building goal: Our funding continues to focus on building the strength and sustainability of Wake County’s nonprofit organizations. Our approach provides multi-year funding with built-in peer support among awarded organizations. Organizations may apply for funding in one of two tracks: 1) an Organizational Assessment/Capacity Building grant, or 2) a Capacity Building grant. See the Request for Proposals.

If you have questions about these funding opportunities, or our online grant management system, contact Gladys Hairston, Program Officer, at Gladys Hairston or 919-838-1110 extension 6.
