Golden Leaf Foundation
DescriptionThe Foundation was created by the North Carolina legislature to administer a portion of the state?s share of the Master Settlement Agreement with cigarette manufacturers. The Foundation is committed to using the funds entrusted to it for projects that show the most potential for strengthening North Carolina?s long-term economy, especially in tobacco-dependent, economically distressed, and/or rural communities. The Foundation focuses its grantmaking on critical issues facing rural communities, advancing agriculture practices, creating opportunity for job creation, and helping retain crucial businesses at risk for leaving an area, and readying the workforce. The Foundation has two standard programs open to eligible entities seeking grants: Open Grants Program and Economic Catalyst Program. The Open Grants Program awards grants in the areas of job creation and economic investment, workforce preparedness, agriculture, and community competitiveness, capacity, and vitality. Economic Catalyst grants support government entities and nonprofits with projects that will create jobs at risk without Foundation funding. Additional information including application instructions can be found on the Web site.
