Since 2012, CFWNC has offered SUN grants of up to $10,000 to assist human service organizations experiencing an unforeseen crisis that impedes their ability to continue their work. With a relatively small amount of funding, SUN grants help organizations address one-time, unbudgeted and time-sensitive emergencies that will enhance or preserve the ability of the organizations to meet their missions. Small but crucial, SUN grants have provided emergency funding totaling $1,384,848 through 181 awards.
