The Town provides funding to nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations as part of its annual budget process. Organizations can apply for general nonprofit funds or cultural arts funds. To be eligible for funding, an organization must promote, provide, or support services in Cary that support the Town’s mission and services. A call for applications is issued in January and applications are due in February. The two applications for funding and the Town’s policies regarding each type of funding can be found below.
