John Rex Endowment Funding Opportunity

The John Rex Endowment announced its current funding opportunities for projects related to its Positive Mental Health and Nonprofit Capacity Building Goals in its five-year plan, Our Plan for Impact, 2013-2018.

For the Positive Mental Health goal, funding is directed towards improving the effectiveness and reach of programming in Wake County children’s places and spaces (i.e., community settings where children regularly spend time) that promotes their positive mental health.  Specific funding interests and requirements are detailed in the Positive Mental Health Request for Proposals.

For the Nonprofit Capacity Building goal, funding is focused on building the strength and sustainability of nonprofit organizations that support Wake County children in living healthy lives.  Three types of support are available as detailed in each respective Request for Proposals:

  • Organizational Assessment grants allow organizations to undergo an assessment of current capacities.
  • Capacity Building grants provide funding for organizations to implement strategies identified through an assessment process for the purpose of increasing their effectiveness and sustainability.
  • Strategic Restructuring grants support two or more organizations assessing the feasibility of and implementation needs for alliances or integrations, such as consolidated administrative functions, shared staff positions, or mergers.

Expansion Grant applications will also be accepted for projects that build or expand on a prior John Rex Endowment assessment, planning, or implementation grant.  Requirements and guidelines are outlined in our “Guidelines for Expansion Grant Applications.”

To apply for grants in this award cycle, you must apply online via the John Rex Endowment’s online grant management system.  Tutorials and instructions are available.  Deadlines are outlined in each request for proposals.  If you have questions about these funding opportunities, or the online grant management system, contact Gladys Hairston, at or 919-838-1110.
