Escondido Charitable Foundation (ECF), an affiliate of The San Diego Foundation, this week announced its annual call for grant applications. In its 10th grant cycle, ECF invites nonprofit organizations and agencies to submit proposals that support programs investing in our youth.
ECF believes Escondidos young people are among the citys strongest assets and can help fulfill the vision of a better Escondido. Projects can focus on a broad range of areas, including leadership and responsibility, enrichment programs, community and cultural engagement, job and life skills. The goal is to engage youth in the community and develop in them a strong civic responsibility, building toward a future with heavy community involvement.
Eligible nonprofit organizations serving Escondido may submit proposals of $15,000 to $35,000. Additionally, projects should be practical, achievable within a 12-month time frame, and have prospects for long-term sustainability. Grant guidelines are available here.
The deadline for submissions is February 21, at 5 p.m. For more information about the application, contact Kerri Favela at firstname.lastname@example.org.
