CCF Exceeded $1 Million in Grants to Support Those in Need in 2020
With the challenges presented by COVID, many North County individuals chose to support their neighbors and those in need. CCF posted over $1 million in grants in 2020, which is in increase of over 25% from the previous year. About half of the grants went toward social services, health and wellness, and services to support the homeless, including food distribution.
The Fund for Supportive Housing and Homeless Recovery, established in 2019, made $25,000 grants to Community Resource Center, North County Lifeline and Solutions for Change to provide assistance to some of the most vulnerable populations in our community.
Many North County residents gave to one of the Foundation’s three giving circles–Hand to Hand, a women’s fund, Encinitas Fund, and Solana Beach Fund. The giving circles provide donor education and collaboration around a shared interest. Pooled donations allow individuals to have a greater impact through their donation.
