Overview:

The Robeson County Community Foundation is a growing family of philanthropic funds, source of grants for local causes and partner for donors. RCCF was founded in 2005 and is led by a local volunteer advisory board that helps build community assets through the creation of permanent endowments, makes grants and leverages leadership – all for the benefit of Robeson County.

The RCCF, through the NC Community Foundation, makes it easy to become a philanthropist, whatever your means or charitable goals. You can open an endowment for your favorite cause at any time – or contribute to an existing fund in any amount.

The RCCF board advises the Robeson County Community Fund, the unrestricted community grantmaking fund, to support local needs. This competitive grants program is held annually. Because advisory board members live and work in Robeson County, they can leverage resources to help meet local needs and access opportunities.

Grants typically range from $500 to $1,000. Collaborative efforts are strongly encouraged.
