We encourage grant requests for projects or programs that are consistent with our mission to enhance the Norfolk area and make a positive impact one people’s live. Over the past five years, gifts to the Unrestricted Endowment have provided financial support to our community’s youths, community-planning activities and worthwhile community development efforts, including the Norfolk Area Big Give. This opportunity capital is helping our community leaders create our future.
