Futer Grantees meet to review organizational development goals

The Futer Essential Human Services grants program is a special three year initiative to strengthen the capacities of key safety net organizations that provide basic human services for our region’s most vulnerable and underserved individuals and families. The CFMC is investing $1.5 million to help strengthen nonprofit organizations providing essential human services in Monterey County.

Ten organizations were awarded general operating grants of $50,000 a year for a total of $150,000 over three years.

Futer Essential Human Services Grants were awarded to: Coastal Kids Home Care, Community Human Services, Food Bank for Monterey County, Franciscan Workers of Junipero Serra, Housing Resource Center, Legal Services for Seniors, Shelter Outreach Plus, Sun Street Centers, United Farm Workers Foundation, and YWCA Monterey County.

Futer grants are funded by the Rudy E. Futer Fund for Human and Humane Needs of the Community Foundation for Monterey County and designated for direct services, particularly for underserved populations.
