Apply for a grant
Our grants are made possible through the contributions of individual donors and nonprofit donor funds managed by the Community Foundation. Some are driven by the charitable interests of our donors, and others come from our unrestricted funds that allow us to operate at our most strategic—investing in needs as they change over time, advancing long-term strategic goals, and taking on key leadership roles.
Shasta Regional Community Foundation grants are open for proposals during specific proposal cycles. Please refer to individual grant application forms for grant proposal deadlines.

Leadership Siskiyou County Alumni Community Projects
