The New Hanover County Community Foundation is a growing family of philanthropic funds, source of grants for local causes and partner for donors. OCFF was founded in 2009 and is led by a local volunteer advisory board that helps build community assets through the creation of permanent endowments, makes grants and leverages leadership – all for the benefit of New Hanover County.
The NHCCF board advises the New Hanover Community Fund, the unrestricted community grantmaking fund, to support local needs. This competitive grants program is held annually. Because advisory board members live and work in New Hanover County, they can leverage resources to help meet local needs and access opportunities. In addition to Sullivan, board members include: Patrick Boykin (vice president), Justin Burgess (secretary), Charles Earney (treasurer), Jonathan Alper, Ned Barclay, Ronald Copley, Eldridge Dodson, Stephen Gaskins, Frank Gibson, Martin Green, Patrick Moore, Hollis Moye Ray, Jane Rippy, Frankie Roberts and Anna Van Rens Taylor.
The NHCCF, through the NC Community Foundation, makes it easy to become a philanthropist, whatever your means or charitable goals. You can open an endowment for your favorite cause at any time – or contribute to an existing fund in any amount. Tax-deductible contributions, made payable to the New Hanover County Community Foundation, can be mailed to the North Carolina Community Foundation, 3737 Glenwood Ave. Suite 460, Raleigh, NC 27612. Contributions can also be made online at nccommunityfoundation.org
