The Joy W. Pope Memorial Grant Program is an annual competitive grant opportunity for organizations in the arts and human services. Through the grants, the Foundation seeks to foster innovation and model solutions across North Carolina.
The program offers two grant funding pools: The Memorial Grant in Arts and the Memorial Grant in Human Services. Proposals can request $25,000 – $100,000, and each fund will award no more than $100,000. As a result, we may issue one or more grants through each fund. Applications and guidelines are identical for each grant. We will accept applications for the 2021 grants between June 15 – September 15, 2020.
