Grants of up to $50,000 to California nonprofit organizations in eligible areas for economic development, youth, and education programs.

Only those organizations that serve populations in North San Diego County and San Diego City area are eligible.

The prospective program/project should be a successful answer to a significant problem in one of the designated focus areas for the 2020-2021 Grant Year. The connection to the focus area(s) should be clear and identifiable. In addition, please provide estimated results along with provable metrics as to how you envision accomplishing these outcomes. 

The two Focus Areas for this cycle are:

  1. Children/Youth, including at-risk youth/teens, foster children and other infant/childhood development issues
