We are excited to review over 30 applications for funding we received by the November 15 deadline! Our team is hard at work evaluating the applications with our Community Giving Rubric and determining how to distribute this year’s available grant funds. Check back after Giving Tuesday (December 3) to see the full list of this year’s grantees.


WOW! Thank you West Contra Costa community members!

With your help these past two weeks, we were able to identify 50 eligible non-profit organizations to invite to our Community Giving Initiative annual grantmaking process — more than 50% growth over last year!

This community-driven grantmaking aims to support exemplary, youth-serving organizations that may fall outside of our foundation’s primary funding areas, but that share our vision for a thriving, vibrant West Contra Costa community. This year, we raised the individual grant limit to $15,000, and we are excited to gather applications from the many youth-serving organizations making a difference in our community.

At CFF, we know it takes a robust ecosystem to provide our young people with everything they need to succeed in school and beyond. Our Community Giving Initiative is one way we recognize and support these efforts each year.
