Important Downloads for Grant Seekers

Cherokee Preservation Foundation is using a new grant application, beginning with the Spring 2012 grant cycle.  The new application streamlines the application process to save grant applicants time, and it also helps both the Foundation and applicants define and track results and ensure success is being achieved.

With the new approach, Cherokee Preservation Foundation is joining with other western North Carolina grantmakers to use a common grant application and make the grantseeking process simpler and more efficient for nonprofits submitting applications to more than one regional funder.

The grant application includes the following components, all of which are MUST reading so that you complete the Grant Application and Grant Work Plan correctly:

  • Grant Guidelines
  • Grant Application Checklist
  • The Foundation’s Goals and Strategies
  • Grant Application Form
  • Grant Work Plan
  • Final Grant Report
  • Example of a Grant Work Plan with outcomes, milestones and measurements
  • Helpful Tips and Examples


If, after reading the Grant Application and support components, you have questions, call the Foundation at 828/497-5550 and ask to speak to the programming staff.

Click on the Word icon to download the application.  Then save it to your hard drive, fill in fields using the Word program on your computer, and print the completed form.  If you prefer to print the blank application and fill it out by hand, that is also acceptable.  The Foundation requires that hard copies of applications be submitted.
