Mission: The Solano Community Foundation is dedicated to strengthening our community both now and for future generations. The Foundation is a vehicle for private donors to make a lasting contribution to our community.
Programs: Scf's main goal is to meet the needs of our donors and community through foundation and donor fund grantmaking. We help them meet their particular philanthropic goals, maximize their investment, and achieve the highest tax savings. We work with individuals, groups, businesses, and organizations to establish endowed or non-endowed funds. Donor funds make grants to qualified nonprofits whose missions and activities match their philanthropic interests. These programs include competitive and noncompetive grant awards, and span different program interest areas, including arts and culture, education, health and social services, the environment, veterans, senior services, and community development. Through donor funds we build community partnerships over time through giving.
education plus! Mini-grants program scf recognizes and supports academically-enriching programs structured to enhance a student's learning experience at school. Small grants are awarded annually to support projects with a wide variety of scholastic interests, including the arts, science, math, health and wellness, financial literacy, reading programs, and technology.
nonprofit partnership program through this program scf promotes partnership among our local nonprofits, donors, the business sector, community leaders, government, and decision-makers. Npp is designed to strengthen, develop and serve solano county nonprofits, and build and improve their visibility and capacity. A small grant is awarded annually to a member nonprofit organization with a specific urgent need.
Challenged by a location that is just outside the circles of influence provided by the San Francisco and Sacramento metro areas,
Solano Community Foundation does an excellent job of promoting the many non-profits in the Solano County region. One of their outreach intiatives is the Nonprofit Partnership Program - a platform for networking and leveraging common goals among these groups.
