Since the Foundation’s inception in 2000, Calaveras Community Foundation has distributed over $3.1M to worthy causes, through competitive grants, scholarships and assistance.
The competitive grant cycle occurs in July each year. Watch this website and local media in June for details. During the application period, you will find the simple application form and instructions on the Applying for Grants page.
The Foundation’s Grants Committee reviews the applications and selects the most worthy for competitive grants each year. A simple written agreement is then executed between the recipient and the Foundation and funds must typically be spent within one year of receipt.
In general, the Foundation does not approve grant requests outside the normal grant review cycle.
