Grants averaging $500 to California nonprofit organizations, government agencies, public schools, Tribal governments, and community groups in eligible counties to support summer programming for youth. Additional funding may be given to programs demonstrating special needs. Funding is intended for programs in Humboldt County.

The spirit of this grant is to inspire and support all of the activities that make holiday programs in the community a success. The Foundation seeks to enhance what is already been accomplished prior to this grant. The Foundation's committee of funding partners and community volunteers will consider each application and prioritize funding based on the following criteria:

  • Program serves a high number of low-income, disabled or otherwise disadvantaged youth,
  • Program serves youth in an outlying area with few summer alternatives for productive activities,
  • Program operating hours are extensive throughout the summer (i.e. every week-day all summer),
  • Program serves extremely high numbers of youth,
  • Program serves an at risk youth population,
  • Programs that provide camperships / scholarships,
  • Programs that have multiple funding sources

The committee may also award additional funding to:

  • Organizations that provide a large number of scholarships to their Summer Program,
  • Organizations that have a Summer Program that requires no fee,
  • Organizations that make good use of available resources and/or collaboration,
  • Organizations with programs that provide developmental and not just recreational opportunities,
  • Organizations that request items that help ensure the safety of their program’s participants.
