LINCOLNTON, N.C. – The Lincoln County Community Foundation recently awarded $36,000 in grants to 17 local projects. The grants will support programs that address a wide range of community needs across Lincoln County.

Grants from this cycle include $4,000 to Lincoln County Senior Services to provide home repairs and accessibility modifications to ensure safe and independent living for low-income older adults; $3,000 to Lincoln County YMCA to help support preschool enrollment for the 2022-2023 academic year; and $5,000 to the Lincoln County Coalition Against Child Abuse to support Child Safety Matters, a program designed to empower children to prevent, recognize and respond appropriately to bullying, cyberbullying and all types of abuse.

“Every child deserves to be safe,” said Sherry Reinhardt, executive director of the Lincoln County Coalition Against Child Abuse. “Current statistics show that one out of every 10 children are victimized. Child Safety Matters for elementary schools and Teen Safety Matters for middle and high schools are comprehensive, research-based, primary prevention programs that educate and empower students and all relevant adults with information and strategies to prevent, recognize and respond appropriately to bullying, cyberbullying, digital dangers, trafficking, and all types of child abuse and exploitation.”

The Lincoln County Community Foundation is a regional affiliate of Charlotte-based Foundation For The Carolinas. The grants were awarded by the LCCF’s local board of advisors as part of its annual grantmaking program. The Lincoln County Community Foundation has invested more than $300,000 in projects and programs that have supported Lincoln County residents since 2002.

“The Lincoln County Community Foundation Board is very pleased to be able to increase the awards granted again this year,” said Joe Lampron, chair of the LCCF Board of Advisors. “The needs in our community continue to grow, as we saw with the grant requests submitted and we feel fortunate to be able to help meet many of those needs through the fund earnings and gifts from Foundation supporters.”
