If you have reviewed our guidelines and are ready to submit your grant request online, please begin the application below.   Please be prepared to fully complete the application, as there is no ‘save and return’ feature.

Traditionally, the Foundation considers grant requests twice a year.  Urgent needs and projects that fall between meeting times may be considered at the discretion of the board.  Soft deadlines are offered to encourage plenty of review time for staff and board.  Please contact us if your application may stretch beyond our requested date.

Spring Meeting (soft deadline February 28, 2017): Public policy and higher education grant requests considered.

Fall Meeting (soft deadline August 21, 2017): Human service, K-12 education, and arts grant requests considered.

The Pope Foundation accepts applications for the Joy W. Pope Memorial Grants in the Arts and Human Services once each year (late summer/early fall).  The application window for the 2018 Joy W. Pope Grants will open on July 1, 2017.  There will be a separate online application for the Joy W. Pope Memorial Grants.

If you have problems attaching files to this application, please mail a hard copy to the Pope Foundation, Attn: Grant Application, at 4601 Six Forks Road, Suite 300, Raleigh NC 27609.  We will accept your partially completed application, and it will not affect our consideration of your grant request.  For all other questions, please contact the foundation at (919) 861-6445.

After submitting your application, you will receive a confirmation message.  While we strive to reply to all proposals we receive, we occasionally may need additional time to review your proposal.  We thank you in advance for your patience.
