Grant Description
Grants of up to $2,500 to California nonprofit organizations in eligible locations for projects to benefit local residents, the elderly, youth, and children. Funding is intended for programs and events that will enhance the quality of life in the local community. Eligible programs are those that benefit the San Marino community.

Grants are available for a new program, the expansion of an existing program or strategic support for an existing program. Services delivered by the program must be part of the nonprofit's mission and meet identified community needs. The program is defined as a coherently packaged group of activities designed to result in meaningful and measurable change for its participants. The program should be designed to reach the greatest number of people at the most reasonable cost. These funds are to be used to support direct program costs, not indirect operating expenses.
