Supporting Our Community

Explore Available Grants

If you are looking for funding, the Community Foundation has numerous options. We manage a growing collection of funds which serve the diverse needs of San Benito County.


Community Impact Matching Grants

Supporting nonprofit organizations who serve the broad needs of San Benito County. If your organization is general in nature, this type of grant may be for you.


Children's Special Needs Grants

The Martin Rajkovich Children's Fund was established to enhance the quality of life for chronically ill children in San Benito County. Look to this fund if you want to refer a child with medical needs.


Women's Fund Grants

Grants from this fund are given to organizations that address the needs of women and girls in our county through the larger Community Impact Matching Grant cycle.


Grant for Interest of Horses

The intent of this charitable fund is to benefit nonprofits which provide services and/or are associated with the beneficial interest of horses, or their care, maintenance, improvement or promotion.

2020 Community Foundation Grant Recipients

Community Foundation grants are made through our various funds. Matching Impact Grants are competitive, but other grants are made on donor initiative. Each grant is a story of

resources meeting needs, of people doing good things in our communities, either by giving or doing. We applaud our donors and those organizations getting the good work done.
