Request for Proposals
Thank you for your interest in a Carolina For The Kids Foundation Grant. Established in 2002 as the Promise Grant Program by UNC Children’s Office of External Affairs, this program enhances the lives of children and families while in our care. It advances programs, services, and other hospital-based initiatives that directly impact care and specific patient-related needs.
Each Spring, applications are accepted from faculty and staff seeking support for their ideas and work in clinical care, advocacy, research, and education. An independent committee reviews the applications and awards grants ranging from $1,000 to $15,000 to the areas of greatest need. For programmatic grant requests that could exceed the maximum financial support or grant period, please contact Keela Lyon for guidance on submission
This program is made possible by the generosity of donors who recognize the value of unrestricted gifts. To date, more than $1 million has been awarded through this program to assist with everything from room renovations to gaming systems to literacy programs.
The grant application and guidelines for submission are available to help you complete your application.
We look forward to seeing your application!
