CCF Grants over $1 million locally, regionally and nationally
CCF granted over $1 million to nonprofits and educational institutions in 2021. Seventy-seven percent of the grants benefited local nonprofit organizations, primarily in North County. Grants supported social services, health and wellness, arts and culture, animals, the environment and education.
The Fund for Supportive Housing and Homeless Recovery, established in 2019, made over $82,000 in grants to nonprofits that help the most vulnerable populations in our community.
North County residents also supported the community through one of the Foundation’s four giving circles–Hand to Hand, a women’s fund, Encinitas Fund, and Solana Beach Fund and Giving with Impact. The giving circles provide donor education and collaboration around a shared interest. Pooled donations allow individuals to have a greater impact through their donation.
The North County COVID-19 Response Fund, a collaborative between Coastal Community Foundation, Leichtag Foundation, and Rancho Santa Fe Foundation continued to address community needs. During 2021 the funds supported learning and educational summer programs for students in North County and mental health services for youth.
