Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $3,000 to California nonprofit organizations in eligible regions for a wide range of projects that serve a charitable or cultural purpose. Preference will be given to projects that will benefit the elderly, children, or the infirm. Projects must serve the San Ramon Valley region.

The grantee must be of such character and reputation that the committee is reasonably certain that the purpose of the grant will be fulfilled honestly and effectively. 

Preference is to be given to:

  • Grantees with which Kiwanis Club members are actively associated on a non‐paid basis. 
  • Purposes directly benefiting the San Ramon Valley community.  However, we also permit a small number of the grants to be directed to purposes that can be considered regional, national, and/or international. 
  • Grants that benefit children, the infirm or the elderly. 
  • Grants that involve ‘hands-on’ participation by club members, and the community at large. 
  • Grants that will provide solace, comfort or consolation. 
  • Grants that have a significant influence on the desired results, such as providing seed money, resulting in matching funds, or enabling a program to exist that would not otherwise do so.
