Request a Grant Writer

Grants to California nonprofit organizations in eligible regions to improve the quality of life for residents. The goal of the fund is to support programs in the following areas: sustaining the arts, protecting the environment, providing education to children and adults, contributing to the safety of residents, and providing for the well-being of those in need. Funding is intended for programs and activities that will benefit the Idyllwild community and surrounding mountain communities.

Funding Considerations

The Idyllwild Advisory Committee takes the following into consideration when reviewing grant requests:

  1. The grant should impact many individuals, rather than a few. Preference is given to agencies that provide programs to the underserved.
  2. The requesting agency should show other sources of revenue for the program or project, or a plan to seek other funds (Be sure to complete the budget template, including other sources of funding).
  3. The requesting agency must demonstrate that it operates with financial integrity.
  4. Proposals for new, enhanced, or expansion programs are welcomed.
  5. Requests for funding that include a reasonable percentage of administrative expense will be considered, but the proposed expenses should be a justifiable expense within context of the proposed project and within reason (i.e., no more than 10% of total requested funding.)
  6. Requests for program-specific stipends will be considered. Stipend is defined (by the IRS) as a fixed sum of money paid periodically for services or to defray expenses. Stipends are typically considered a program expense related to the delivery of activities of a specific program, or activity of the organization, and not key to the operational function of the organization. Administrative expense is defined as "those expenses related to the overall operations and management of the organization."
