M. Jack and Dorothy Stephens Fund



Application Deadline

N/A This grant program is now part of Our Focus: Community Development

The M. Jack and Dorothy Stephens Fund was established through an estate gift to Triangle Community Foundation to address the needs of disadvantaged people in the communities of southern Wake County. The fund has granted more than $430,000 to 28 organizations, listed below, since its inception.

This fund no longer has an independent grant process. Due to an increasingly smaller pool of funding available for a competitive grant cycle, Foundation staff has decided to honor the donors’ intent by rolling these funds into the Community Development grant program. Organizations that have previously applied for and/or received funding through the M. Jack and Dorothy Stephens Fund are encouraged to submit an application to the next cycle of the Community Development grant program, which we expect to open in 2021.
