Keeping the future of agriculture bright in North Carolina
Each year, Carolina Farm Credit supports organizations with grants of up to $5,000 to help in their endeavors and to further the future of agriculture in our region of North Carolina.
Fund Mission & Objectives
The Fund's mission is to build strong partnerships and alliances, leveraging the resources within the fund to preserve and promote the farmer, the family, and our rural communities. The Fund has two main objectives: to invest in the future of agriculture and to enhance and impact the quality of life in rural North Carolina.
The Fund operates on an application-based grant system. Grants will be awarded for up to $5,000 per organization per year. To be considered for funding, organizations' values and purpose must align with the Fund's mission. Applications must be submitted online. You will be asked to attach a copy of your organizations W9 to the application prior to submission. Incomplete applications can not be accepted, please make sure you complete all fields prior to submission.
Grants will be considered for programs only in the 54 counties and geographic areas where Carolina Farm Credit conducts business. Grants will only be awarded to non-profit groups or organizations and will not be awarded to individuals or private farms.
Grant applications will be accepted from January 1 to July 31st. Proposals will be reviewed and grants will be awarded in the fourth quarter. All recipients will be expected to attend a banquet to recognize grant recipients in the following spring.
The deadline for applications is June 30, 2020.
