Calaveras Community Foundation Announces Annual Competitive Grants Period for 2018

Calaveras Community Foundation (CCF) continues to focus on initiatives for 2018’s grant giving. The three initiatives are: Seniors Initiative, Youth Initiative and Community Enrichment Initiative. Funding for these grants is from the Foundation’s General Grant Fund. A detailed explanation of these initiatives may be viewed on CCF’s website:

Applications will begin to be accepted on January 15, 2018 and must be submitted to CCF only via email by 5:00 PM on Thursday, February 15, 2018.

ALL applications for competitive grants MUST address one of the initiatives to be considered for funding. Complete details, application guidelines and fillable forms are available on the CCF website: in the “Grants and Scholarships” area.

In 2017, over $64,000 was awarded during CCF’s competitive grant cycle. To see the specifics about what projects were funded, go to CCF’s website – under “Grants and Scholarships” – drop down “Competitive Grants Given.”

Individual donations and corporate partners’ generosity allows CCF to continue to fund viable projects that benefit our county residents, students and seniors. Since it’s inception in 2000, CCF has provided more than $1,900,000 in competitive grants, scholarships and assistance.
