The Beaufort Fund Believes in Impact

Making an impact, let alone measuring one, baffles countless nonprofits in our region. Donors seek results and nonprofits, working to achieve those results, can get tied up in the red tape of progress reports in order to secure annual grants from funders. The Beaufort Fund of Coastal Community Foundation is one of few funding sources that offers multi-year grant commitments to nonprofit agencies who have already received at least five years of grant awards.

It's a win-win situation: funders can streamline grant processes for veteran nonprofits and those agencies can focus on charitable missions and programming. This year eighteen organizations received multi-year grants from The Beaufort Fund totalling distributions in the amount of $254,310. (This is in addition to 31 one year grantees who received $245,690). The multi-year grantees are listed below. Congratulations for setting the pace and continuing to do great work in your communities.
