NC COVID-19 Resources

As challenges continue to unfold surrounding the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Golden LEAF will provide links to valuable information, guidance and resources.

Golden LEAF Operations Update

The Golden LEAF Foundation is carefully and continually monitoring the COVID-19 situation as it is impacting the state of North Carolina. While our Golden LEAF offices are currently open, we are mindful of and following the applicable stay at home orders. Many of our team are now working from home and are available by email. If you need to reach any of us, you can access our emails by clicking here. For those of us at the office, we are practicing appropriate social distancing.

Our team continues to administer grants and process new applications, progress reports, and payment requests as they are received, along with carrying out the other important work of the foundation. We are assisting grantees who are unable to meet project goals or timelines due to obstacles as a result of COVID-19. If you are a current Golden LEAF grantee experiencing such challenges, please email your Golden LEAF point of contact for help. (When emailing, please put your Golden LEAF project number in the subject line. This will make responding to your request easier.)

We will continue posting any additional Golden LEAF operational updates on our website www.goldenleaf.org.

This is a challenging time for our state and our country. We remain strong when we work together. We are here for you and look forward to our continued partnership.

Golden LEAF President, Chief Executive Officer
