The Golden LEAF Foundation is holding a series of meetings throughout North Carolina to help potential grant applicants better understand the funder’s grant making priorities and procedures.
The foundation, based in Rocky Mount, was created to help the state move from its economic dependence on tobacco, and to create new job opportunities in affected communities.
The briefings will be led by Pat Cabe, the foundation’s vice president for programs, and Courtney Mills, a program officer.
The deadline for applications is August 1. No registration is required to attend the briefings.
Meetings will be held from 10 a.m. to noon in the following locations:
- May 16: Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College, Asheville
- May 17: Guildford Technical Community College, Jamestown
- May 19: Robeson Community College, Lumberton
- May 20: Beaufort County Community College, Washington, N.C.
- June 6: North Carolina Agricultural Extension Service, Elizabeth City
