2020 Non-Profit Applicants

Could your non-profit do even more with more money? Then apply to become the recipient of a Power of Sharing Award. Four non-profit organizations will move forward as finalists to receive awards at The Power of Sharing Gala on Tuesday, May 19, 2020. This will be an elegant evening where local businesses join forces to make a substantial monetary and in-kind donation. If your organization wins, your non-profit could receive big dollars for the work you are doing to better the community.


How to Apply

All non-profit organizations within Wake, Durham, Orange, Johnston, Harnett, Lee, Chatham, Person, Granville, Franklin, Nash, Vance, Warren, Halifax, Edgecombe and Wilson County have been invited to apply. This year’s goal is to fund organizations that have projects or programs that will specifically help promote financial well being or contribute to education. A panel comprised of local business contributors will review applications and vote to determine 4 finalists. All finalists will be invited to the Power of Sharing Gala on May 19th.

We know you’re excited by the possibilities (as are we), but first you have to complete the application. Below are the next steps in this process.


Step 1

First read the application to find out what information you will need. Once you begin the online application it cannot be saved, so do not start until you have the required information. When you are ready, complete the application and click submit. Applications must be submitted by April 14th at 7p to be considered.

Step 2

We will notify you if you’ve been selected to become a finalist in the Power of Sharing Award via email. If you are not selected as a finalist this year, there will be an opportunity to apply again next year.  

Step 3

If you are selected as a finalist you will be asked to submit a 1-2 minute video and a few pictures that showcase the work you do in the community. The video and pictures will be shown the night of the gala. You will also be asked to confirm attendance from someone in your organization. You will receive 5 tickets for your organization. *All non-profit organizations that are being recognized will be invited to The Power of Sharing Gala and required to attend the event in order to receive the award.
