RALEIGH, N.C. – Grants of up to $500 to pay for nonprofit staffers to attend professional-development training seminars will be available from a new fund created at the Triangle Community Foundation by The Castleton Group.
Castleton, a human-resources-services firm based in Raleigh, with offices in Asheville, N.C., and in Cincinnati, created the fund with an initial gift of $20,000, and will give priority to small nonprofits seeking grants to improve their human-resources management.
The fund also will consider requests for other types of training or consultation, as well as requests from larger nonprofits.
November 15 is the deadline for submitting applications for the first round of grants, which are available to nonprofits in Chatham, Durham, Orange and Wake counties in the Triangle, and in Buncombe and Henderson counties in the Asheville area.
The firm also plans several times a year to provide free human-resources seminars to nonprofits.
