Macon County Community Funding Pool


Non-Profit organizations serving Macon County have until 5:00 p.m. on Monday, February 28, 2022, to apply for county funds through the Macon County Community Funding Pool (CFP). Applications (including required budget forms) and instructions are available below. Hard copies may be made available at Macon County Public Library on Siler Farm Road in Franklin, the Hudson Library on Main Street in Highlands, and the Nantahala Public Library on Nantahala School Road, please call ahead to make sure a copy will be ready for pickup.

Organizations applying for CFP funds must provide financial statements such as budgets, federal tax-exempt reports, organizational goals and objectives, and program/service descriptions. First-time applicants must contact Karen Wallace at (828) 524-3600, or Bobbie Contino at (828) 342-7872 to discuss their proposal. Groups not incorporated as non-profits may enlist an established non-profit to serve as their fiscal agent. Collaborative agency proposals are encouraged to leverage limited funding and to share resources.

The Community Funding Pool was established to help the Macon County Board of Commissioners allocate tax-generated funds to local non-profits in a fair and efficient way. Macon County Commissioners voted to allocate $75,000 in support of this funding cycle. The CFP Task Force is composed of citizens chosen by the Commissioners to consider applications and make recommendations to the Board, who make final funding decisions. The Community Funding Pool is a separate entity from the Macon County Community Foundation.
