Mission & Purpose

The mission and purpose of The 4S Ranch~Del Sur Community Foundation is to improve the quality of life in 4S Ranch and Del Sur by meeting emerging needs through:

  • Encouraging and increasing responsible and effective philanthropy,
  • Building a community endowment,
  • Providing funds annually to organizations and causes, and
  • Giving the community a vehicle for legacy planning and cash gifts that will benefit 4S Ranch and Del Sur annually and in perpetuity.

The vision of the Foundation is to inspire a culture of giving that supports, strengthens and enriches the quality of life in the 4S Ranch~Del Sur community now and for generations to come.


As the 4S Ranch~Del Sur Community Foundation begins its 14th grant cycle we find our community significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. For many this impact has been devastating. From the loss of loved ones, the loss of livelihoods, the challenges in educating our youth, the disruption to how we simply shop or socialize, every aspect of life in our community has been touched. The stress created by the duration of the pandemic has brought an increase in physiological and psychological health issues as well. In light of the unique challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Foundation invites nonprofits with programs that facilitate community COVID-19 recovery targeting the communities of 4S Ranch and Del Sur to submit an application for the 2021-2022 grant cycle.

Focus Area: 

For this grant cycle the foundation will accept proposals for high impact programs that address community COVID-19 recovery for families and individuals of all ages in 4S Ranch and Del Sur. Our recovery from this pandemic needs to be as unique as the pandemic itself. The examples given below are not intended to define the box but merely provide some ideas.

Examples include but are not limited to:

  • Employment related programs that create employment opportunities or assist in job training for workers impacted by COVID-19.
  • Programs that address educational issues such as home schooling, catch up for students due to missed school, material support for distance/virtual learning, and after school activities targeting heath and wellbeing.
  • Programs or projects that provide constructive activities for residents that target overall health and wellbeing.
  • Programs that address the physiological and/or psychological impacts of COVID-19 and assist residents in dealing with them.
