The Percy B. Ferebee Endowment Fund will be accepting grant applications through Sept. 30. Grants from the Endowment are limited to exempt organizations, under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, located in Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Jackson, Macon, and Swain counties and the Cherokee Indian Reservation in western North Carolina. The Endowment typically does not fund requests for general operating and salary expenses.
Primary considerations will be given to projects which will be of a non-recurring nature or short-term in duration as to reliance upon grants from the Endowment. Grants may be made to match contributions or other sources of funds for the support of a particular project.
The Endowment was created under the will of Percy B. Ferebee for educational, charitable, and benevolent purposes.
