Game Changer Grant

The Kids 'N Community Foundation will accept proposals for a Game Changer grant from non-profit organizations that specialize in working with children. Grants from the Foundation support the health and educational needs of underserved populations in our community.

Areas of Interest

Funding Priorities: 

Education / Literacy

  • Grants that encourage educational achievement in areas of documented weakness
  • Grants that promote advanced learning opportunities to gifted children who would otherwise lack the resources necessary to pursue dreams and talents
  • Grants that expose children to learning opportunities they would otherwise not experience due to insufficient financial resources
  • Grants that provide educational programs targeted to low-income children

Health / Wellness

  • Grants that emphasize prevention and/or recovery from health problems
  • Grants that enhance the health of needy children by promoting healthy lifestyles
  • Grants that provide access to medicine and medical procedures for children who require special assistance and would otherwise be denied such assistance
  • Grants that strengthen the capacity of operating nonprofit organizations to more effectively meet the needs of low-income children
Eligibility Requirements

To qualify for a Game Changer grant from the Foundation an organization must:

  • Be a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization in good standing with the Internal Revenue Service serving children in the state of North Carolina
  • Have a record of outstanding service in effectively and efficiently delivering programs and services that improve the lives of children in need
  • Serve children in underserved populations focusing on the needs of health and education
  • Deliver services which impact the lives of children, both short and long-term
