Endowment Fund Grants & Scholarships

The NCAS Endowment Fund was established within the Triangle Community Foundation in February 1988 with a contribution from North Carolina Amateur Sports (NCAS), host of the US Olympic Festival in 1987. Fifty percent of the proceeds from the Festival were given to the United States Olympic Committee to advance the Olympic movement in the United States. The North Carolina Amateur Sports Board of Directors voted to place the remaining profits in a permanent endowment that would promote amateur athletics in North Carolina. To date, more than $1 million has been distributed to individuals and organizations in North Carolina. The 2024 Grant and Educational Scholarship applications will be posted soon. Applications are typically due by mid-July.
