It’s an exciting time at the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust, as our Healthy Places NC work and ongoing efforts to invest in communities in a thoughtful, sustainable way grows. Here are just a few of the recent and upcoming opportunities to share our work and celebrate our staff members.
Launched by the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust in 2012, Healthy Places NC is investing up to $100 million to improve the health of residents in 10 to 15 of the state’s rural, financially disadvantaged counties, many of which are home to high rates of obesity, diabetes and other serious health conditions. Healthy Places differs from traditional philanthropy in that grant-making is driven by community concerns, as well as the Trust’s assessment of the prospect for sustainable, long-term change.
The Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust is excited to share the February 2015 grant cycle announcements. To be eligible for funding, applicants must complete an advance consultation with the Trust before submitting an application.
