About this funder:



Community Grants

We believe in the power of a thriving community. A community where people and families feel safe and have equal access to the resources they need for their health and well-being; where all kids have a fair shot at becoming the best they can be; where everyone has opportunities to inspire and be inspired through the arts; and where we all feel called and encouraged to drive bold change through service and leadership.

One way we're helping to build a thriving community is through our Community Grants.

Spot Grants

Spot Grants help to build a thriving community by supporting projects and programs that address current challenges, create opportunities and build dialogue. Proposals are reviewed by our Grants Committee within 10 business days after receipt of the proposal.

SFACF’s Grant Committee considers grant requests for:

  • Programs that require start-up funds to address important community needs or opportunities ;
  • Expansion of programs that meet important community needs or opportunities ;
  • Assistance to organizations weathering unforeseen or unusual financial crises ;
  • Programs that increase an organization’s capacity to advance its mission more efficiently or effectively ;
  • Programs or studies that inform the community’s understanding of needs or opportunities.
