Outer Banks Community Foundation Executive Director Lorelei Costa will lead a grants workshop for local non-profit organizations during the Outer Banks Community Services Collaborative meeting on Friday, Sept. 7 at the Outer Banks Association of Realtors office in Nags Head.
OBCF has significantly expanded its grants program to include non-profit staff wages as part of its Community Enrichment Grants Program. This is in addition to its traditional focus on funding tangible items, one-time costs, capacity-building endeavors, program scholarships, and capital assets and improvements.
‘If your organization has hesitated in the past to apply for a grant, we invite you to read our new criteria on our website, attend our workshop on September 7, and call our staff to discuss your needs. Your projects may now be a perfect fit for our grants program,’ said Costa.
