Futrell-Mauldin Community Fund

Impacting our community

The Tar River Wine Festival has become one of the preeminent charitable events in Eastern North Carolina, raising about $35,000 each year. The Futrell-Mauldin Community Fund utilizes this event to donate approximately fifty thousand dollars each year to charitable organizations in Nash and Edgecombe Counties. The mission of the Futrell-Mauldin Community Fund is to make a significant and lasting difference in the lives of the citizens of Nash and Edgecombe Counties.

The Futrell-Mauldin Community Foundation has supported a variety of nonprofit organizations in the Greater Rocky Mount Area for almost 20 years through over $750,000 in grant funds.

The Fund pursues this mission by:

  • Providing direct financial resources to support a wide variety of community needs including education, health, social services, arts, civic affairs, and the conservation and preservation of historical, cultural, civic and environmental resources.
  • Serving as a vehicle for giving, allowing citizens with varied charitable interests and abilities to have an opportunity to invest in the community’s quality of life and its future.
  • Building and maintaining permanent endowment funds of approximately $1 million for the benefit of the community.
  • Educating citizens and involving them in charitable giving.

This year, now more than ever, giving is crucial to help our community nonprofits that have suffered a decrease in annual donations.
