Grants of up to $5,000 to California nonprofit organizations, municipalities, and schools in eligible locations for programs and services to improve the quality of life for local residents. Funding is intended to support programs that make the community a desirable place to work, live, and play. Projects must benefit residents of Ramona.

Desirable projects will inspire community pride, revitalization and increase the quality of life of the broader community. Preference will be given to projects that clearly address Ramona-specific issues and needs. Funding may be used to expand existing programs, replicate programs tested in other communities or to launch totally new efforts. 

RCF will fund programs managed by nonprofit organizations, schools or government agencies that encourage the following:

  • Demonstrates and/or fosters collaboration with other successful entities in the community to achieve a common goal or objective;
  • A current project which has strategic impact; i.e., provides long lasting, ongoing benefit to the community or the distinct population it is intended to serve;
  • Based on a proven track record of success as demonstrated through process, leaders, and/or experienced partners;
  • Targeted at clearly defined, measurable results attainable within a reasonable time frame;
  • Demonstrates sustainability; i.e., is replicable, repeatable and/or scalable.
