The Outer Banks Community Foundation has awarded grants to five nonprofits during its third quarter grants cycle. The grants will help preserve our region’s history and culture, support the arts in education, afford scholarships for nonprofit leaders, and address food insecurity, disaster response, and homelessness.
“Behind each of these awards are compelling stories of the dedicated nonprofit professionals who work every day to meet needs in our community,” said Community Foundation President and CEO Chris Sawin. “We couldn’t be more proud to support their projects.”
