NON-PROFIT GRANTS

The Community Foundation of Lincoln County (CFLC) annually awards grants to non-profit organizations in and around Lincoln County. Grant amounts and the number of recipients may vary based on merit and the number of applications we receive. Deserving 501(c)(3) organizations are invited to apply for funding assistance, and referrals are also encouraged. Past recipients have included the High Mountain Youth Project, the Capitan Library, the Carrizozo Food Bank, and the Sierra Blanca Amateur Radio Club.

THE SHELTER FUND

The Shelter Fund was established to assist members of the community who have experienced hardship due to unforeseen disasters such as fire or flooding. Originally intended to help those who suddenly find themselves without shelter, funds are generally granted for specific cases of need, and recipients are identified at the discretion of the CFLC Board of Directors on a year-round basis. If you would like to apply for funding, click on the button below to download an application, then submit it to cflcnm@gmail.com and contact one of the CFLC board members (click here for a list) to ensure we are aware of your situation as soon as possible.
