The Community Foundation of the Dan River Region’s grant cycle is now open for proposals from 501c3 organizations and government entities serving Danville, Pittsylvania County and Caswell County, North Carolina.

All applications must be submitted online at by July 30.

This is foundation’s only call for grant applications for the 2019 cycle. Awards are given in January, and proposals should be for projects taking place in 2019.

The foundation is an independent, public charity established in September 1996 by a steering committee of local civic leaders to gather permanent funds to support our area.

While the foundation works with donors to establish funds and scholarships to benefit any geographic area, the primary service area is Danville/Pittsylvania County and Caswell County, North Carolina.

Community foundations are established to manage a collection of separate funds created by individuals and corporations — a community of donors — to enhance the quality of life in an area. These funds are pooled and invested under the direction of a board of directors comprised of community leaders.

The Community Foundation is a fully tax-exempt organization. Individuals, businesses or organizations may establish their own fund or may contribute any amount to existing funds.
