Our grant program focuses on local and national charities serving the needs of children.
National Partnership Grants
Each year a Charity of Choice and several National Grants are awarded through the CCF’s Partnership Grant Program.
Through the Foundation’s partnership grant program, each year a substantial donation is made to a philanthropic organization, who, like the CAPTRUST Community Foundation, is committed to enriching the lives of children in communities we serve. Through our application process, we select a Charity of Choice, typically providing a grant of $100,000+, as well as seeking to positively impact the charity’s reach and scale. As the organization’s largest grant, the CAPTRUST Community Foundation sets aside nearly 40 percent of its giving budget each year for this purpose.
While there is only one Charity of Choice award annually, there are multiple national grants given each year. For these grants, the CAPTRUST Community Foundation looks for organizations that align with the CCF mission to partner with throughout the year.
The Partnership Grant Program application window is now closed. It will reopen in January 2024.
Delivering critical assistance during times of crisis.
Our Crisis Grant program is designed to help charities who are assisting those severely impacted by natural disaster or a crisis that negatively impacts a family’s ability to thrive.
To help ease the burdens these disasters place on families and help them cope and begin to rebuild their lives, the CAPTRUST Community Foundation dedicates more than 10 percent of its annual gift giving budget for purposes of targeted crisis support for families in need.
Charities which serve communities, families, and individuals severely impacted by natural disaster or a crisis may apply for this grant.
CAPTRUST employees may submit requests to provide small grants to charities that support our mission.
The vetted, approved charities will each receive up to $2,000. In 2022, CCF awarded 117 employee grants totaling approximately $229,400.
Due to our special origins and the generosity of CAPTRUST employees and the company, this grant program is closed to the public.
CAPTRUST Cares Project Grants
These grants provide CAPTRUST employees the opportunity to actively participate in community outreach.
CAPTRUST Cares Project Grants are designed to allow colleagues to advance an organization’s work with children, via both financial support and employee engagement.
CAPTRUST employees must submit a written application for the grant. After reviewing the applicability of the request, the CCF will identify the level of financial support and engagement appropriate to provide the organization.
