About the Community Fund for Carmel Valley

Community Fund for Carmel Valley LoIn 2020, the Community Fund for Carmel Valley (CFCV) was created to serve residents, businesses and organizations, all having an opportunity to contribute to the greater good of others. In response to the Carmel Fire, the fund deployed $188,000 in grants to nonprofits providing direct financial assistance to affected residents, most of whom lost their homes.

The fund is governed by a local advisory board consisting of longstanding volunteer community members. Its role is to provide oversight, raise funds, define grantmaking priorities and award grants. The Community Foundation for Monterey County provides administrative, investment and grantmaking expertise. CFCV seeks to improve the lives of our fellow community members, both now and in the future.

The CFCV provides grants to nonprofit organizations that benefit the following communities: Carmel Valley from Highway 1 to Cahoon Grade, Cachagua and Jamesburg.
