Grant Opportunities

Grant OpportunitiesProgram grants are driven by The San Diego Foundation mission, and focus on community needs and impact that will benefit our region.

Grants are awarded through a competitive process for programs that advance the framework of WELL (Work, Enjoy, Live and Learn) in San Diego for a cohesive, vibrant region.

Through WELL, The Foundation is mobilizing resources to prepare San Diegans for 21st century work; championing the belief that all in our community have access to treasured outdoor and cultural amenities; advancing efforts for all local residents to have access to a clean and healthy environment, vibrant and engaged neighborhoods, housing affordability and convenient transportation; and ensuring that San Diegans have access to vital tools to thrive in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), arts- and environment-based education.

Unsolicited grant requests for program grants are not considered. To review available opportunities, please check our website and Frequently Asked Questions. For additional questions, please contact Kerri Favela, Grants Manager, at or 619-402-1827.
