RALEIGH, N.C. — The John William Pope Foundation recently awarded $1.8 million to North Carolina nonprofits in its winter grant cycle. Of that, over $1 million went to humanitarian organizations that meet hunger, housing, and health needs, primarily in the Triangle region. That figure includes $400,000 to the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center to help fulfill a $1.3 million pledge made in 2014.

“We’re pleased to help ease the burden of North Carolinians who are in need,” said foundation Chairman Art Pope. “Our grantees are doing excellent work to ensure that real and pressing issues are addressed in our communities. They are also providing first-class access to arts and education. The true value of our grantees’ work cannot be overstated,” said Pope.

First-time grants were made to Camp Corral ($10,000), Dress for Success of Eastern North Carolina ($10,000), the Hope Center at Pullen ($5,000), Junior Achievement of the Triangle ($5,000), TROSA ($10,000), Wake County 4-H ($10,000), and Raleigh Camerata ($2,500).  A full list of the winter 2015 grantees can be found below.

The Foundation works to improve the well being of citizens in North Carolina and the nation through the advancement of individual freedom and personal responsibility. From its first grant in 1986 to the present, the Foundation’s giving has totaled more than $100 million, and has been primarily directed to organizations in North Carolina.
