For Immediate Release
Oct. 22, 2021 – San Diego, CA – Oceanside Community Foundation (OCF), an affiliate of The San Diego Foundation, today announced the availability of grant funding to enhance and support academic development programs for K-12 students in Oceanside.
In the 2022 – 2023 grant cycle, OCF invites local schools and organizations to submit project proposals that demonstrate a strong mission to support the academic, social development and enrichment of Oceanside students and provide the building blocks to recover from the pandemic.
“After a long year of online distance learning, we want to strengthen students’ academic development and help our communities recuperate from the COVID-19 crisis,” said OCF Board Chair Vince Alessi. “Our goal is to support organizations who are committed to providing our youth with academic resources and the social-emotional tools needed to thrive.”
These projects should be culturally humble and sensitive, practical and achievable within a 12-month time frame, and have prospects for long-term sustainability. The minimum funding range is $5,000 to a maximum of $25,000. Proposals must be submitted online no later than 5 p.m. on December 3, 2021.
In its 13 years of grantmaking, OCF has granted more than $700,000 to over 60 nonprofit programs that strengthen quality of life for all who live, work and enjoy Oceanside.
