Welcome to West Marin Fund’s Community Grants 2021
West Marin Fund is a community foundation that inspires giving and mobilizes resources to enhance the long-term wellbeing and quality of life for all in coastal West Marin. We provide grants and training for local nonprofits and convene key stakeholders to help identify and fund equitable solutions to challenges facing people who live, work and visit in West Marin.
The purpose of this Community Grants round is to support nonprofits to improve their services in West Marin in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and other external challenges.
We invite applications from nonprofit organizations and groups that are responding to the social, economic, and health consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic in West Marin. We recognize the ongoing distress faced by many people who live, work and study here, and the important role that nonprofits play in supporting and assisting them. We also recognize the organizational challenges that nonprofits themselves face in navigating challenging times and the importance of strengthening their services with sufficient resources, adaptive skills, strong teamwork and a solid infrastructure. We are committed to supporting activities that promote justice, diversity, equity and inclusion; challenge racism; and positively effect the health and wellbeing particularly of Black, Indigenous and People of Color and members of low-income households.
