GREENSBORO, N.C. — Endowments for five nonprofits and for downtown revival are the focus of new grants announced by the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro.
Five nonprofits each will receive $10,000 for an endowment if they can raise at least $20,000 in endowed funds from new sources by Dec. 15, 2003.
Groups selected for the endowment challenge, which join an initial five selected a year ago, are Family Service of the Piedmont, Guilford Day School, Randolph County Partnership for Children, The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Clubs of Greensboro and the Women’s Resource Center.
And six nonprofits will receive $33,450 in grants for downtown initiatives from the foundation’s Future Fund, a group of young leaders who raised that much money for an endowment fund that was matched by the Greensboro law firm Long, Miller & Associates.
The foundation also announced that the five groups selected a year ago for the initial round of endowment challenge grants have met the challenge – Court Watch of North Carolina, Greensboro Beautiful, Greensboro Children’s Museum, Leadership Greensboro and Help Inc. Center Against Violence.
