Level Up SD 2024 Summer Grant Program

In Partnership with San Diego Unified School District

Elevate your impact next summer through the Level Up SD Summer 2024 grant program. Nonprofits once again have the opportunity to partner with San Diego Foundation and San Diego Unified School District to create a transformational summer enrichment experience for San Diego Unified students, accelerating learning while nurturing students’ social and emotional well-being. Approximately $7.2 million is available to support Level Up SD Summer 2024 programming.

Funding is intended to support programs for Universal Transitional Kindergarten (UTK) to eighth-grade students but will prioritize proposals that serve UTK to sixth grade. Grant amounts may range from $30,000 to $500,000 and fund an array of program types that offer not only enrichment activities, but also a strong academic component.
