With the aim of enhancing the quality of life for those who live, work, and play in Ramona, the Ramona Community Foundation, an affiliate of the San Diego Foundation, has announced the availability of grant funding through its Vibrant Community program.
For the 2021/2022 cycle, RCF invites nonprofit organizations to submit Ramona-specific project proposals Ramona that have the potential to build a more vibrant community and help it recover from the coronavirus pandemic.
These projects should be practical, achievable within a twelve-month time frame and have prospects for long-term sustainability. Funding may be used to expand existing programs, replicate programs tested in other communities or to launch totally new efforts.
The goal of the grant cycle is to support programs that make Ramona a great place to live, work, and play. Desirable projects will inspire community pride and revitalization and increase quality of life for the broader community.
RCF intends to award between $30,000 to $40,000 in grants in the 2021/2022 cycle. Only proposals in a range of $1,500 to $5,000 will be accepted.
Preference will be given to projects that clearly address Ramona-specific issues and needs. To be eligible for a grant from RCF, organizations must have tax-exempt status and provide services in the community of Ramona.
Proposals must be submitted online by no later than 5:00 p.m. on Monday, May 24, 2021. (The grant application can be accessed here.)
