Rancho Bernardo Community Foundation Grants

Grant Guidelines: 2014-2015 Grant Cycle

Cycle 3: Civil Society and Civic Engagement and Leadership

The Rancho Bernardo Community Foundation is in its 26th year of grantmaking to enhance the quality of life for those who live, work and play in Rancho Bernardo. In the current cycle, the Rancho Bernardo Community Foundation will accept proposals that demonstrate the power to build a more vibrant and civically engaged community.

The goal of the grant cycle is to support programs that enhance the community of Rancho Bernardo. Desirable projects will increase dialogue and participation, inspire community pride and revitalization and increase the broader participation of the community. The Rancho Bernardo Community Foundation is committed to the supporting organizations, projects and programs dedicated to improving the lives of those who live, work and play in Rancho Bernardo.

Nonprofit organizations are invited to submit project proposals specifically for Rancho Bernardo that demonstrate the power to build a more vibrant and civically engaged community.

These projects should be practical, achievable within a 12-month time frame, and have prospects for long-term sustainability. Funding may be used to expand existing programs, replicate programs tested in other communities or to launch totally new efforts.

GrantsRancho Bernardo Community Foundation (RBCF) grantees, known as Community Partners, are organizations serving Rancho Bernardo that have received historical support from the RBCF dating back to 2001.
 
Each year the RBCF Board determines which organizations will fall into the Community Partners category and are therefore eligible for the $1,000 Community Partner grant awards.
