“For the past three years, our board has benefited from Give, Grant, Grow Lincoln,” said Wayne Hoyle, Lincoln County Community Foundation board chair. “We are thankful for the commitment Foundation For The Carolinas has to our annual competitive grants process and our community at large, and we are amazed by the response from our board, past and present.”
Highlights of grants include, among others:
- The Lincoln County Coalition Against Domestic Violence received a grant for its shelter.
- The Special Olympics received a grant for its summer camp program.
- Speak Up For Children provides youth services to the community and used the grant to help children in foster care attend summer camp.
“The Lincoln County Community Foundation’s grant funded 15 children in foster care to attended two or more weeks of Summer Y Camp,” Jill Eaddy, vice president of Speak Up For Children, said about how LCCF’s increased grant funding impacted her organization. “Each child was given a backpack and supplies, and meals were provided for each day.”
