The Cape Fear Literary Council received five grants totaling nearly $39,000 in 2014, according to a news release.

Three of the grants: one for $25,000, one for $10,000 and a third for $1,600, were specifically awarded to the Raising the Roof campaign. The remaining money derives from an Instructional Merit Grant of $1,300 from the International Paper’s IP Foundation and a General Operating Support Grant from the Wells Fargo Community Connection Grant Program for a total of $38,900.

The $25,000 grant comes from an anonymous donor through the New Hanover County Community Foundation. The $10,000 grant comes from George Huffmon and Atlantic Neurosurgical & Spine Specialists P.A, and the $1,600 was donated by the Landfall Foundation, the release stated.

Last year, the literacy council embarked on its Raising the Roof building renovation campaign to fund renovations of a second building on the literacy council campus to provide more space for adult educational services.
