The mission of the North Carolina Community AIDS Fund (NCCAF) is to empower communities to lead the response to the HIV epidemic by increasing individual, community, and statewide capacity to bring an end to HIV in North Carolina.
We are pleased to announce that NCCAF’s 4th Red Ribbon Service Award Gala will be held on May 19th at the Nasher Museum at Duke University. This gala serves to honor the excellence and dedication of people who serve the clients affected by HIV/AIDS in local communities across the state of North Carolina. People to be considered for the awards are submitted by the leadership in their area, a panel of NCCAF friends select the nominees, and the community is encouraged to participate in the selecting the winning nominee via online ballot. Everyone involved in the process is encouraged to attend the event which is FREE! We just ask that you register as the event space is limited.
The success of this event will be credited largely to our sponsors, who lend their names and financial support. The money we raise each year goes to supporting HIV-related service activities across the state of North Carolina and defray the cost of the award ceremony. This year’s goal is $30,000. There are a wide range of sponsorship levels from $250 to $10,000, and you can also make a donation of any amount. As a sponsor, you or your organization will benefit from extended exposure through media campaigns and promotional efforts directed toward the supporters of NCCAF. Your donation will enable you to enjoy exceptional exposure to an important segment of your target audience and moreover be seen as a leader in helping HIV/AIDS service programs throughout the state.
Every year, we award at least 3 grants to qualified community-based organizations focused on positively impacting those infected and affected by HIV in North Carolina. Since 2008, NCCAF has awarded over $536,105 in grants to to help enhance the direct HIV client services of prevention and care organizations in North Carolina.
We seek to support communities as they build and expand their HIV programs through programmatic development, organizational capacity building, and evaluation. We provide assistance with grant writing, fundraising, board development, strategic planning, evaluation, social media marketing, and capacity building.
