The mission of the Encinitas Fund is to address local needs and to build philanthropy for the benefit of the community today and through legacy gifts. Through this community fund a person or business can make one donation, and through pooled philanthropy, make a boarder impact in Encinitas through grants to numerous nonprofits and community projects.
Established in 2018, the Fund is part of Coastal Community Foundation that has been serving the North Coast for over 30 years. The mission of Coastal Community Foundation is to enhance the quality of life in the San Diego North Coastal area by directing philanthropic efforts toward community needs.
A grant committee of Encinitas residents and the Foundation will provide oversight to ensure that grants from the Encinitas Fund are distributed for charitable purposes in the community and administered in accordance with established standards and best practices for community foundations.
