Our Vision

Our vision is to be a leader in the philanthropic community by facilitating tangible, positive change in Gaston County at the root cause level and by closely adhering to our directive to put money “where it is needed most and will do the most good."

Our Mission

Our mission is to perpetuate the legacy of the Glenn sisters by providing resources where they are most needed and will do the most good for the greater Gaston community. 

Application Guidelines

The Foundation is phasing in a process whereby a percentage of grant funds will be directed toward addressing root cause problems in our county in order to make a more significant impact on economic development and quality of life issues. The Foundation awards seed money and operating grants, but does not award planning grants, grants to individuals, or grants for scholarships. The Foundation will consider requests for capital campaigns on a case by case basis and considers multi-year funding requests one year at a time.
