The Fund for Greensboro & Lake Fund
Consistent our this mission, the Greensboro Association launched the Fund for Greensboro as a funding and advisory resource that invests in social, educational, municipal and environmental projects that are important to the residents of the Town of Greensboro.
The Fund for Greensboro
The Fund for Greensboro is a community endowment with the mission to support social, cultural, educational, health, infrastructural and environmental needs via grants. Funded by donations and bequests and upon reaching a minimum corpus balance, the endowment will generate an annual distribution that can be allocated through the annual Greensboro Association Grants Program.
Grants are recommended by the Fund for Greensboro Grants Committee – a six person committee representing the diverse interests in our community. In 2016, grants totaled approximately $14,000. The endowment will expand the impact of the grants program.
The Lake Fund Reserve
The Lake Fund has been in place within the Greensboro Association for over 10 years and is a reserve fund designed to provide the ability for a rapid response to threats that may impact Caspian Lake and its surrounding environment, including eradicating invasive species and environmental protection initiatives.
We gratefully accept unrestricted donations – including annual giving – from our members and supporters. Unrestricted funds help us deliver on our mission each year and support the annual grants program. By building a reserve, we can help address important challenges and opportunities that arise in Greensboro.
