Landfall Foundation Awards Local Grants

Spotlight on Landfall Foundation

Spots 1The Landfall Foundation last month announced nearly $500,000 in grants to benefit local nonprofits and schools. The foundation presented checks to eighty-eight groups, ranging from arts organizations such as Opera House Theatre Company to educational programs such as Young Scientist Academy/YWCA Lower Cape Fear to health initiatives such as Cape Fear HealthNet.

Earlier this year, the foundation, which gets its support from residents of the community through fundraising events, also gave $65,000 in capital grants to The Children’s Museum of Wilmington, StepUp Wilmington, and the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina. Another $9,200 went to the Landfall employee’s scholarship program.

The foundation has distributed $6.8 million since it was created in 1995.
