Community Innovation Fund
Impact Alamance and The Co|Ooperative have partnered to introduce the Community Innovation Fund. The Community Innovation Fund is designed to act as a catalyst for creative projects and community development efforts within Alamance County. The goal of the fund is to identify, develop and support community-led initiatives which further our vision of a thriving, dynamic community that values and invests in its people and places by supporting creativity, innovation and access to opportunity.
Grant Writer Assistance
The Grant Writer Assistance program is designed to build the capacity of local nonprofits to further support the services they offer to our community. Recent surveys of local nonprofits identified capacity building as a top need for organizations. Many nonprofits lack the time, skills and resources to focus on grant writing. Therefore, many grant opportunities that could improve and enhance health opportunities in our community are not pursued.
In response to this need, Impact Alamance offers grant-writing services free of charge to those organizations that qualify. If you are interested in this service please submit a grant assistance application form posted below. Applications will be accepted year round.
Nonprofit Organizational Assessment and Capacity Building
This program is designed to build the capacity of local nonprofits to further support the services they offer to our community. Impact Alamance supports organizations to strengthen and enhance core infrastructure so they can deliver quality programming more effectively and efficiently. Such support enables the organizations to focus on how they must operate in order to achieve their mission. Impact Alamance will offer an organizational assessment free of charge to those organizations that qualify. Upon successfully completing the organizational assessment and identifying the top capacity issue for the organization, Impact Alamance will then provide technical assistance for capacity building that addresses that specific issue as well as evaluation assistance.
