In order to enhance the level of care provided at Cape Fear Valley Health, the Foundation awards grant funds to various areas within Cape Fear Valley to fund worthwhile projects that may ordinarily miss out on being funded. The bi-annual grant program is funded by undesignated contributions made to the Foundation and funding is dependent upon the level of donations. Service areas within Cape Fear Valley are encouraged to apply for funding and the applications are approved by a committee of Cape Fear Valley Health Foundation’s Board of Directors. These community leaders review the applications and make approval decisions based on the funding available during the April and October grant cycle each year.
