Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF)
Grants of up to $10,000 to California nonprofit faith-based organizations for programs and projects that address systemic racial injustices in eligible counties. Priority is given to organizations that are allied with or led by Black, Indigenous, or People of Color residents. Organizations must serve San Mateo and/or Santa Clara counties.
Thriving communities of faith foster deep relationships, a sense of community and support for those that face harsh circumstances. Many also support civic engagement focused on social and racial justice. In a region where many have suffered the impact of systemic racial injustices, the faith community can provide a moral frame for seeking solutions to important issues confronting the region.
Under SVCF’s new strategic direction, the Faith Community Action Grants under the Community Catalyst Fund will address disparities and build a strong and engaged community. Through this grant program, SVCF will support faith-based leaders and organizations working to strengthen interfaith and race relations, invest in leadership within the community, increase community participation in civic life, and provide services to BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) residents.
The work that this program funds will be part of a long-term strategy to achieve systemic change in Silicon Valley. Organizations seeking to apply should have a clear focus on racial justice and a plan to center the community they are serving in leadership, design and implementation of programs. Priority will be given to BIPOC-led and allied organizations and those with annual budgets under $1 million. Organizations can apply for general operating support or program support grants. Grants will be awarded to nonprofit organizations that demonstrate all of the following:
