About the Charlotte Hornets Foundation Grants:

The Charlotte Hornets Foundation will award grants valued at $25,000 each in the areas of Education, Health, Military Care and Wellness. The Charlotte Hornets Foundation will work alongside the winning organizations to fulfil these grants and highlight the work of the organization. For example, if you are seeking a grant for an upgraded technology center, the Charlotte Hornets Foundation will assist in the planning, execution and unveiling of the new space. We believe in fully supporting our community members throughout the entire process.

If your organization is selected, please anticipate working closely with the Charlotte Hornets Foundation and working within its guidelines in areas such as branding and media.
