Funding

Are you interested in working with the NCF?  Use this link to apply for funding.

NCF’s intent is to award grants every year, subject to availability of funds. When there are dividends to be distributed, NCF will advertise a “Call for Proposals.” Brief applications are required, and the advisory committee reviews them carefully before making a decision.

Eligibility criteria are that the applicant be a 501c3 organization and that the proposed project aligns with one or more of NCF’s funding priorities.

  • Community Events
  • Youth Sports and Activities
  • Social Justice
  • Beautification Improvements
  • Public Safety
  • Structural Improvements
  • Community Needs
  • Leadership Development

Most grants are small ($500 to $2,500), and the committee likes to see evidence of other sources of funding to ensure that projects can be completed successfully. The grant period is usually one year or less. Receiving a grant award is not a guarantee of future funding.
