The Long Beach Community Foundation is pleased to launch a call for proposals for the Community Impact Grant Program.
The 2021 focus is Homeless Youth and grants will be awarded to qualified applicants who administer programs that best address post-pandemic educational and health needs of homeless youth or youth at risk of becoming homeless in Long Beach.
The community needs are constantly changing and the LBCF Impact Fund changes to meet those needs.
Since its inception, the Foundation’s discretionary grants have included the following areas: Arts and Culture, Community Improvement and Development, Diversity and Human Relations, Economic Self-Sufficiency, Gang Prevention and Intervention, Health and Human Services, Literacy and Literacy Training, Parenting Education, Services to Senior Citizens, Violence Prevention, Youth Programs, and Housing and Homelessness.
Each year, the Foundation’s Board of Directors determines suitable areas of focus for discretionary grantmaking from the Impact Fund. The Board searches for nonprofit organizations that can provide services to meet critical, new, and emerging community needs.
No attempt is made to replace ongoing public support for successful organizations. Instead, grants help local nonprofits leverage their resources in a way that improves the conditions of our great city. As the corpus grows, more needs will be met.
- The Long Beach Community Foundation only makes grants to US-based approved 501(C)(3) nonprofit, educational, or governmental organizations.
- Charitable organizations can set up their user accounts in the LBCF grant portal.
