Our Story-Celebrating 24 Years of Giving

The Landfall Foundation was formed as a means for Landfall residents to thoughtfully and confidently extend support to greater Wilmington area non-profit organizations.  Grants are awarded after our Grants Committee evaluates applications for projects and programs in the areas of the arts, education, health and welfare. This valuable contribution to smaller organizations, that are often underfunded, makes a major impact on the vital needs of our community.

Since its inception in September of 1995, the foundation has raised and contributed $4,701,000 to Wilmington non-profit organizations. In 2018, a total of $388,000 was awarded to 82 Wilmington area non-profit organizations. An additional $50,000 was awarded to organizations that provide support to individuals who suffered from hurricane Florence.
