The Jandy Ammons Foundation supports 12 regional groups
Twelve North Carolina-based nonprofits received grants in January from The Jandy Ammons Foundation to support their capital projects in 2019 relating to art, wildlife conservation, education and mission. The nonprofits include Artspace, Burning Coal Theatre, Marbles Kids Museum, North Carolina Museum of Art Foundation, North Carolina State Engineering Foundation, Triangle Land Conservacy, Visual Art Exchange and Wilders Grove Youth Center, all located in Raleigh; A Lotta Love in Chapel Hill; Community of Hope Ministries in Garner; the Town of Wake Forest; and Holts Chapel Community Church in Oriental.
“Charitable organizations generate valuable opportunities for local communities,” says Jan Ammons, co-founder and president of The Jandy Ammons Foundation. “Our goal is to seek out those with a strong volunteer base who are planning unique projects to bolster the health and wellness of their community. They simply need the capital to propel them forward, and that’s where we can contribute.”
Letters of Inquiry for 2019 projects are being accepted through May 6. Learn more at thejandyammonsfoundation.org.
