About this funder:



Nelson County Community Fund

The Nelson County Community Fund (NCCF) was established to help those in need within Nelson County. NCCF operates with a totally volunteer Advisory Committee as a committee-advised fund that makes grants to local charitable organizations and agencies with the expressed goal of improving the life of Nelson County residents. Much of our work is accomplished by collaborating with nonprofits, funders, community leaders, and other partners to tackle important issues in our county. The NCCF operates under the charter of the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation (CACF) – a 501(c)(3) organization that oversees the NCCF’s unrestricted general and endowment funds.


Since 2000, nearly $1,400,000 has been awarded to more than 50 agencies and programs.

Education, scholarships, seniors, medical, dental, hunger, childcare, disabilities, refurbishing substandard housing are all areas where the NCCF has made positive, life-changing contributions.

What types of projects are supported?

Careful consideration is given to the potential impact of the project and to especially imaginative and collaborative approaches to solving community needs. Categories of support include, but are not limited to, human services, education, environment, health, community needs and development.

Both seed money grants for innovative new programs and sustaining grants to organizations performing services vital to the community will be considered. Projects of interest include those that assist citizens whose needs are not met by existing services and those that benefit a significant number of citizens of the community.
