Sonoma Valley Fund Re-Launches Grants Programs
Sonoma Valley Fund, in conjunction with our parent, Community Foundation Sonoma County, has re-launched its grants program. Over the course of three years, the Sonoma Valley Grants Committee has plans to recommend a total of over $1M in grants
thanks to the generosity of our donors, Roland and Hazel Todd. Note: Grants programs are open to all nonprofits serving Sonoma Valley that meet the specified criteria for each grants program.
Sonoma Valley Fund is launching two grants programs:
Health and Human Services Grants Program
Sonoma Valley Fund will launch a three-year Health and Human Services grants program in 2015 which will support non-profits in the Valley whose mission is to provide services for the sick, needy, and elderly. This will be a competitive grants program with all nonprofits serving Sonoma Valley invited to participate. Detailed criteria for this competitive grants program will be posted in early August on Sonoma Valley Fund's website.
- August 3rd, 2015: Grants information will be posted to Sonoma Valley Fund's website
- August 28, 2015: Grants workshop (location TBD)
- September 7, 2015: Grant application opens
- October 12, 2015: Grant application closes
- November 18, 2015: Applicants informed of grant awards
How to Apply
A link for submitting online grant applications will be available on both Sonoma Valley Fund and Community Foundation Sonoma County websites. The application will be available here on September 7, 2015.
Over the course of three years, we expect to make grants in excess of $375K based on this program.
Open Space Grants Program
Sonoma Valley Fund will launch a second grant making program in 2016 specifically geared toward open space, land and trail acquisition. Stay tuned for more information about this funding area which will be posted on Sonoma Valley Fund's website in late 2015.
