The Calaveras Community Foundation Announces a New and Different Competitive Grant Process for 2013

Calaveras County, CA... Last year, the Calaveras Community Foundation (CCF) began a process of strategic planning on how best to increase donations and how to better focus its annual competitive grant process on meeting the needs of Calaveras County. The result of that planning was the decision to focus on two initiatives this year:...

Aging in Place Seniors Initiative

Our County has a large senior community, many of whom are isolated and financially fragile. The Foundation has supported seniors for years, funding senior center improvements, food programs and transportation services. The Foundation wants to work with local and regional service organizations to expand these efforts, possibly focusing on services such as nutrition, transportation, mobile dental services, socialization, home repairs and pet care that will allow our seniors to remain in their homes and to age with health, safety and dignity.

Support the learning of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM Initiative)

American students seem to have less opportunity to pursue learning the “hard sciences” than students in other countries, leaving many good jobs unfilled and putting the United States at a competitive disadvantage. The Foundation wants to encourage and support programs for our County’s youth that will increase their interest in STEM and open up career opportunities for them. Schools and youth organizations (4H, Scouts, etc.) are eligible for grants. The Foundation is looking for projects that will stimulate and motivate our youth beyond the usual classroom experience. Grant possibilities are numerous, but might include robotics, model rocketry, astronomy, innovative field trips, specialized equipment for learning, or similar projects. “Outside the Box” ideas are encouraged!

For 2013, ALL applications for competitive grants MUST address one of these two initiatives to be considered for funding. Grants up to $10,000 each will be considered. All applications must be submitted to CCF by 5:00 pm on Friday, May 31, 2013. Grants will be awarded in July and August.

For complete grant and application information, visit the Foundation’s website at www.calaverascommunityfoundation.org and visit the “grants and scholarship” section.
