Grants ranging from $2,500 to $15,000 to California nonprofit organizations to address the vital needs of women and children in Sacramento, Sonoma, South Placer, or Amador Counties. Funding is intended for programs and organizations that provide assistance to underserved women and children, including but not limited to those that address the following critical needs: food, shelter, education and safety. Funding can be used to support the general operations of an organization’s mission or for a specific program relating to women and children.

The American River Bank Foundation is committed to supporting organizations that create opportunity, enhance self-esteem and provide physical and emotional well-being for the most vulnerable women and children.

The American River Bank Foundation welcomes proposals from organizations of different sizes, capacities and scopes of services. They seek to support organizations that can not only have compelling stories, but that can demonstrate through solid facts the significant impact they can make in the community. Other factors considered are:

  • Follow best practices, including clarity of purpose, engagement with the communities served, fiscal responsibility and accountability
  • Specifically describe organizational and/or program services and activities and can quantify the impact a grant would have on these
  • Tie directly to the Foundation’s purpose, without creating new programs
  • Demonstrate sound planning and management and do not needlessly duplicate existing efforts
  • Actively seek other sources of funding
