The board of advisors of the Columbus County Community Foundation is accepting grant applications from nonprofits meeting needs in the local community.  Funds are available for nonprofit organizations serving Columbus County and will be awarded from the Columbus County Community Fund.  Grants typically range from $500 to $1,000. Applications are available online beginning March 27. Visit for information about applying. The deadline for applications is noon April 28.  Grants are not available for regranting purposes, capital campaigns, capital improvements, out-of-state travel or for individuals. Funds are awarded by the board of advisors of the Columbus County Community Foundation, an affiliate of the North Carolina Community Foundation.  “This is a wonderful opportunity for our nonprofits to expand their impact in our local community,” said Becky High, CCCF board president. “We are excited to partner with our local nonprofit community to continue supporting Columbus County.”  The CCCF was founded in 1999 and is led by a local volunteer advisory board that helps build community assets through the creation of permanent endowments, makes grants and leverages leadership — all for the benefit of Columbus County. The CCCF board advises the Columbus County Community Fund, the unrestricted community grantmaking fund, to support local needs. The competitive grants program is held annually. Advisory board members live and work in Columbus County, positioning them to strategically leverage resources, meet local needs and access opportunities. In addition to High, board members include: Henry Edmund (vice-president), Liz McLean (secretary), Andy Wayne (treasurer), Amber Bellamy, Gary Kramer, Lisa Richey, Terray Suggs, Kevin Williamson, Adam Wooten and Richard Wright.  The CCCF, through the NCCF, makes it easy to become a philanthropist, whatever your means or charitable goals. You can open an endowment for your favorite cause at any time – or contribute to an existing fund in any amount. Tax-deductible contributions, made payable to the Columbus County Community Foundation, can be mailed to the North Carolina Community Foundation, 3737 Glenwood Ave. Suite 460, Raleigh, NC 27612. Contributions can also be made online at  For more information, contact NCCF Program Officer Anne Sorhagen at or (910) 202-6727 or visit the NCCF website at
