Escondido CA— Escondido Charitable Foundation (ECF), an affiliate of The San Diego Foundation, announced on Thursday, its annual call for grant applications. In its 12th grant cycle, ECF invites nonprofit organizations and agencies to submit proposals for programs that enhance Escondido through interactive, publicly-accessible arts and cultural experiences.
Successful applications may include projects that connect people to each other and to their community by providing opportunities for dialogue and expression, shared experiences and civic pride. To promote this goal, ECF will accept proposals that aim to positively impact the image of Escondido and create positive experiences in our community.
The goal of the grant cycle is to elevate the image of Escondido through arts and culture, increase community pride, enhance community identity, and provide interactive experiences that have the potential to become longstanding, well-known community fixtures or traditions.
Eligible nonprofit organizations serving Escondido may submit proposals of $15,000 to $50,000. Multiple organizations may join to formulate and submit a single grant proposal. Grant guidelines are available here. ECF is also hosting a voluntary informational workshop on January 17 at the Raymond Center for Philanthropy to answer questions about the grant cycle and help organizations who are considering applying. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to Miguel Lopez at firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, January 16.
