TCF Awards $192,000 in Community Impact Grants

The Community Foundation recently awarded $192,000 in grants to 21 local nonprofits. These one-year capacity building grants were made possible by the Community Impact Fund at the Foundation.

The Community Impact Fund makes awards to nonprofits to increase their core capacities to carry out their missions. It is meant to enable an organization to reflect, learn, and take action in developing short and long-term, sustainable solutions to challenges they face in addressing critical community needs. 

“Most funding opportunities are directed to programs, but the Community Impact Fund is different,” said Celia Cudiamat, Senior Vice President of Grants & Community Impact. “This capacity-building fund allows us to enhance effective community impact through the development of strong, efficient, and sustainable nonprofits.”

The 2019 one-year Community Impact Fund grantees are: Arts Connection ($10,000); Bear Valley Community Healthcare District Foundation ($7,800); Calicinto Ranch Inc ($10,000); California Partnership ($10,000); Canine Support Teams Inc ($10,000); Child Advocates of San Bernardino County ($10,000); Cove Communities Senior Association ($10,000); Desert Blind Association Inc ($10,000); Dezart Performs ($10,000); Growing Inland Achievement ($10,000); HIV + Aging Research Project – Palm Springs ($10,000); Making Hope Happen Foundation ($10,000); My Learning Studio Outreach ($1,500); Rebuilding Together Mountain Communities ($10,000); Samaritan Counseling Center($6,700); The Empowerment Center ($8,500); The LGBT Sanctuary Palm Springs Inc ($10,000); United States Adaptive Recreation Center ($10,000); United Way Of The Desert ($10,000); Young Idyllwild Inc ($7,500); Youth Mentoring Action Network ($10,000).

“As a collective impact organization focused on improving people’s lives in the region through education, we couldn’t be more grateful for this Community Impact Fund grant that will be used to create consistent outreach materials so we can engage additional partners and expand programming in service of the community,” said Ann Marie Allen, Senior Director at Growing Inland Achievement.

The Foundation accepts competitive grant proposals from nonprofit organizations who work to make a difference in the lives of Riverside and San Bernardino County residents throughout the year. Nonprofits interested in applying in 2020 can check the TCF website for guidelines and giving periods.

The 2020 grant schedule and instructions on how to apply will be available in February 2020.

Individuals who wish to offer financial support to a cause or issue in the community that is particularly meaningful to them, can also contact TCF to see how their donation might make the biggest impact.
