CCF is, again, focusing on initiatives.

Funding for these grants is from the Foundation’s General Grant Fund. This process is separate and freestanding from the application process for funding from the Disaster Relief Fund that benefits the Butte Fire victims.

Applications began to be accepted on January 15, 2016 and must be submitted to CCF via email by 5:00 PM on Monday, February 15, 2016.

Since it’s inception in 2000, CCF has provided more than $1,000,000 in competitive grants, scholarships and assistance. The Foundation administers dozens of charitable funds for scholarships and other worthy causes.
