Release date: 8/13/2012
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (August 14, 2012) – While the economic landscape is still making it difficult for non-profits to secure funding, Truliant has awarded 29 non-profit organizations mini-grants up $1000 to support their operations. Over 150 organizations in Truliant’s North Carolina, Virginia and South Carolina markets applied to receive Community Mini-Grant Program funds.
“The Truliant Community Mini-Grant Program is designed to enhance operational support for nonprofit agencies that serve people in “underserved” communities where Truliant operates,” commented Marjorie Rorie, director of community services for Truliant. Rorie led several grant workshops for the organizations prior to grant selection as a community service for nonprofits to teach them how to complete a successful application for the community grant.
To qualify for the mini-grant, community and faith-based agencies had to impact one or more of the following areas: health and human services programs, youth, affordable housing, financial literacy and/or economic development. The grant cycle begins in May of each year.
