Teaming together with strong nonprofit partners, Longleaf Fund grants aim to strengthen the character and achievement of at-risk children and youth while encouraging communities to reach higher and create opportunities for a brighter future.
Capital grants from $10,000 to $150,000 will be awarded to organizations serving at-risk children and youth for the following:
Projects that build community and increase daily physical activity by building or enhancing age-appropriate, accessible space for play, sports and recreational activities.
Projects that promote learning, especially for at-risk youth, with a particular emphasis on creating or improving access to technology.
Projects that enhance the quality of life for children, ages 0-18, with disabilities (physical and/or mental) by improving their educational or physical environment and developing the children’s physical capabilities.
The Longleaf Fund is an anonymous Donor Advised Fund managed by Foundation For The Carolinas, a community foundation serving the greater Charlotte region.
