Davidson is accepting applications for nonprofit grant requests

Aug. 11. Davidson is now accepting applications from nonprofits for grant funding for the 2021-2022 fiscal year. 

Go to: www.townofdavidson.org/nonprofitfunding for more information and to apply. The application deadline is Sept. 10.

Below are the program grant guidelines:    

+ Nonprofit agencies must meet a public purpose that the town government does not directly provide but could if facilities and staffing were available. The nonprofit agency must be experienced in delivering that service. 

+ Nonprofit agencies must have 501(c) 3 status, a volunteer board of directors, and must provide to the town appropriate accounting measures in compliance with the Local Government Budget and Fiscal Control Act, to ensure accountability.

+ Only those organizations exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of Title 26 of the U.S.C. established within one year prior to any application are eligible for operational funding; written evidence of 501(c)(3) establishment date is a requirement of application. Organizations past one year of establishing a 501(c)(3) status are not eligible for operational funding.

+ The number of agencies funded can change each year, and there is no limit on the number of agencies that can qualify and apply.
