Our grants reach all corners of our community –
It is through grants that the Foundation is able to help elevate the quality of life for residents of the Verdugo area.
We welcome grant requests from nonprofit organizations. Grant recipients must have appropriate fiscal and program accountability. The Foundation does not make grants to individuals unless they are students receiving scholarships (see our section on Scholarships for more information).
