Church Improvement

This grant providies funds for capital investments to predominantly African American churches in Carroll County. Priority will be given to churches that have limited ability to raise funds above normal operating costs. Funding priorities will be primarily for brick and mortar projects that will improve the physical condition of the churches and help them better serve their congregation and the community. This grant can not fund furnishings (i.e. chairs, pews, etc.) or parking lots.  This grant can only fund projects for Church owned property, not leased property or buildings.

Katherine “Trinka” Davis Rynne Fund 

This grant provides funds for direct services to veterans in Carroll County. Ms. Davis’ passion and drive made her a pillar in the community. After her passing, she is still helping neighbors in her community with a fund that has become an important part of CFWG. TDRF was established in 2009 to both honor the life work of Ms. Davis and provide a permanent fund to assist veterans and their families.

The POP fund fosters activism and volunteerism in our community in order to focus on the local needs of women and children.
