Warren County Community Foundation awards $2,160 in local grants


The board of advisors of the Warren County Community Foundation recently announced $2,160 in local grant awards from the community grantmaking fund, according to Richard Hunter, board president.


This year the board granted:

  • $1,080 to the American Red Cross Serving Eastern NC Region for Disaster Relief and Preparedness

  • $1,080 to Loaves & Fishes Ministries, Inc. for general operating support

Hunter thanked the community for its support of the Warren County Community Foundation. “We are proud to support these nonprofit programs that are so vital to the community,” he said. “We are grateful to the many generous individuals and organizations that have supported our work to inspire philanthropy across our community.”
The Warren County Community Foundation is a growing family of philanthropic funds, source of grants for local causes and partner for donors. WCCF was founded in 1999 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 Warren County.
The WCCF board advises the Warren County 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 Warren County, they can leverage resources to help meet local needs and access opportunities. In addition to Hunter, board members include: Linda Browne (secretary), Bob Lesser (treasurer), Barbara Brayboy, Sears Bugg, Walter Lowe, Cheryl Reddish and Susan Thompson.
The WCCF, 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 either the Warren 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.
