“We are excited and enthused to be selected as the recipients of such an impactful grant,” says Candice Miles, Chair of the Board at ESC. “It exemplifies our mission of improving the sustainability of local nonprofits via our equitable and effective service offerings.”
“This is the first of several opportunities the city will present to help local nonprofits strengthen their capacity for service and develop best practices,” says Dr. Leone Lettsome, Federal Program Manager at City of Raleigh Municipal Government. “ESC understands the relationship between organizational deficiencies in areas of finance, oversight, and resource management which impacts an organization's service capacity and sustainability. Those issues, in most cases, influence an organization's ability to apply for and qualify for grant opportunities. Council and staff are happy to bring this opportunity to the community and strengthen the City’s dedication to supporting our nonprofit partners.”
