Non-Profit Relief Grant

In response to the hardships facing Mendocino County as a result of the economic and social consequences of this emergency, the Community Foundation is offering the Non-Profit Relief Grant program to mitigate some of the unique difficulties faced by the non-profit sector in Mendocino County. The Community Foundation anticipates holding two rounds of funding at this time. Funds are provided by the COVID-19 Non-Profit Relief Fund, a fund of the Community Foundation of Mendocino County.

Priorities and Types of Funding

Consideration is given to organizations who meet the following criteria:

  • Have a demonstrated reduction in funding and/or increased demand for services due to impacts from COVID-19;
  • Have a plan for adapting or maintaining services now or in the future including adherence to applicable county or state guidance on re-opening;
  • Have demonstrated a high degree of benefit to the general public or a broad sub-population (e.g., youth, elderly) over time; and,
  • Have the energy and organizational capacity to adapt and continue to have a sustainable, long-term influence in the community.

Priority will be given to organizations who are still unable to open due to COVID-19 restrictions, or who have faced ongoing hardship due to high fixed operating costs and decreased revenues.

Additional guidelines can be found here.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • The Community Foundation will also consider geographic distribution and equity in serving special populations or historically underserved communities to ensure that the Non-Profit Relief program maximizes its capacity to benefit the whole of Mendocino County.


  • Additional preference will be given to organizations who have not received a Paycheck Protection Program loan.
