We are excited to welcome Jane Litz as our new Chief Financial Officer at Coastal Community...
At Coastal Community Foundation, we’re always working to improve the experience of our donors, nonprofit partners and staff. To that end, we will be transitioning to a new grants management software in early 2020. We’ll be fully utilizing that software as of March 1, 2020, but will begin the transition in January of 2020. That timing does coincide with our January specialized grantmaking cycle, so we’ll be doing this cycle a bit differently. For the Blackbaud Fund and the Waccamaw Community Foundation Application, you will submit the information through our current online portal system at this link, as you have for the past several years – nothing will change for those two.
For all other competitive programs running in the January cycle (Charles Webb-Ed Croft, Griffith-Reyburn, Realtors Housing Opportunities Fund, NEW Fund and Winthrop Family Fund), you will be filling out a Word document application, rather than submitting the information online. You’ll be able to access those applications by following a link for each program on the grant opportunities page on our website (also linked below). Once complete, you’ll submit the applications by email to Grants@CoastalCommunityFoundation.org. You’ll get an automatic confirmation that your application has been submitted. This email account is not monitored for questions on the applications themselves – for any questions on the applications or programs, please reach out to the staff member responsible for the program. Below you’ll see details on each program included in this cycle, along with the contact person for the program.
Thank you in advance for your flexibility and patience as we work to give you the best experience possible! Deadline for all January cycle programs is Wednesday, January 15, 2020.
