What is the Nelson County Community Fund?
The Nelson County Community Fund (NCCF) was established to help those in need within Nelson County. NCCF operates with a totally volunteer Advisory Committee as a committee-advised fund that makes grants to local charitable organizations and agencies with the expressed goal of improving the life of Nelson County residents. Much of our work is accomplished by collaborating with nonprofits, funders, community leaders, and other partners to tackle important issues in our county. The NCCF operates under the charter of the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation (CACF) – a 501(c)(3) organization that oversees the NCCF’s unrestricted general and endowment funds.
NCCF works by collecting funds from generous donors and by fund raising through events such as the yearly Opportunity Ball. These dollars are invested in local charities that have applied through grant applications.
