SOLANO COMMUNITY IMPACT FUND

The 2022 Solano Community Impact Fund Grant cycle is now open!

Thank you for your patience these past few weeks as we transitioned from a 'paper-intensive' grant application process to an automated one using Google Forms.

GRANT SIZE. The max grant amount per organization is $15,000.

GRANT PERIOD IMPORTANT DATES.

  • Grant Cycle Opens: July 22, 2022
  • Application Deadline: September 9, 2022
  • Decision Announced: September 23, 2022
  • Grants Awarded: September 30, 2022

FUNDING PURPOSE.  This fund will provide grants to nonprofits and faith-based organizations (with a 501c3 determination letter) to help address the persistent growth in social safety net needs of the most vulnerable; to adapt and respond to new needs facing communities due to COVID.

The requesting organization must already offer or be working toward delivery of pandemic-response programs or services for underrepresented or underserved communities in Solano County. Further, centering equity in pandemic-response grants awarded is essential to mitigating the inequities which have been exacerbated by COVID and its ongoing impact. Grants from this Fund will be made to support and strengthen nonprofits serving Solano County residents by:

  • Enhancing capacity to serve BIPOC communities and organizations in Solano County.
  • Supporting collaborations and networking of organizations with a focus on equity.

ONLINE LETTER OF INQUIRY (LOI). Organizations interested in applying for a 'Pandemic-Response Support Grant' from this fund must first complete and submit an online LOI Submission Form.

Important Note: If you would like a copy of your LOI submission sent to you via email (from Google), make sure you turn on the "Send me a copy of my responses" button at the end of the LOI form BEFORE you click the Submit button. You may also print out the page before you submit the form. Please do not contact SCF with a request to send you a copy of your submission.

GRANTEE REPORT FORM. For all grantees who received a SCIF grant in 2020 and 2021, your Final Grantee Report is past due. Organizations who have not submitted this required report are considered ineligible for further funding from SCF. Use this link to download, complete and submit your COVID-19 Grantee Final Report.

BACKGROUND INFO. SCF launched this fund in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in March of 2020.  This fund was originally created to further SCF’s mission to support and cultivate sustainable and long-term resilient communities in Solano County.  From the outset, SCF grantmaking efforts focused on the most vulnerable and under-served populations (e.g., seniors, homeless, unemployed, marginalized, and BIPOC communities) impacted by COVID-19. The now expanded purpose is to help re-build community resources for healing and positive change.  Please consider making a donation to this fund to help residents in need.


SCF is forever grateful to the donors who made contributions to our Solano Community Impact Fund in 2020 and 2021.  We are especially honored and thankful for the the generous funding and leadership received from Silicon Valley Community Foundation and from the League of California Community Foundations (made possible by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation).
