Grant Description
Grants to California organizations in eligible regions for projects and programs to benefit residents and visitors. Funding is intended to support activities that focus on improving the cultural, social, and physical well-being of those living in or visiting the community of Avila Beach.

​In the summer of each calendar year, organizations located in Avila Beach and other interested parties that serve Avila Beach are invited to submit requests for the funding of projects to enhance the community of Avila Beach to be accomplished during the following calendar year. 

The goal of the Foundation is to finance enhancement projects in one of three ways:

  • Minor Grants: Projects usually requiring funding of less than $5,000.
  • Major Grants: Projects or programs seeking funding of $5,000-plus.
  • Sponsored Grants: The Foundation would provide a matching allocation for this type of project and co-sponsor the project for funding by an external entity.

The Foundation Supports:

  • Improvements in the physical, cultural, and social well-being of residents and visitors of the Avila Beach Community
  • Enhancements beyond the services normally provided by government and private agencies
  • Projects that reflect the history and culture of Avila Beach residents and visitors
  • Projects that provide for permanent improvements

​The Avila Beach Community Foundation Board of Trustees recognizes the value of seeking grants from our organization to leverage funding from other grant-making organizations.  It is, therefore, possible that applicants seeking matching grants may be given greater consideration during our selection process.
