The Community Foundation created the East Greensboro Tornado Relief Fund to help provide support to those impacted by the tornado that touched down Sunday, April 15th.
The Community Foundation is excited to continue its partnership with the Greensboro Grasshoppers through which we recognize local residents who have made a big difference to our community – truly, a “Community Game Changer.”
Nonprofits interested in applying for a Women to Women grant are invited to participate in an information session on April 18 (9:00 - 10:00 am) at the Weaver Foundation, 324 West Wendover Avenue, Greensboro, NC 27408. Attendees will receive additional information and will be encouraged to discuss ideas for collaboration with fellow participants. The session will be held in the conference room on the first floor.
Degrees Matter! will provide one-on-one and group advising sessions to employees of business partners and members of the community directly on financial aid, financial literacy and FAFSA/scholarship assistance, academic assistance, getting "college-ready", applying for college, exploring careers, selecting the right college and enrolling in college.
In March 2016, WGHP FOX8 launched "Fox8 Spotlight on the Community Foundations." The series broadcasts a weekly story regarding the philanthropy work being done in the Triad by the High Point Community Foundation, The Winston-Salem Foundation and the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro.
