Investing in Healthy, Safe and Vibrant Communities

Total Grantmaking Chart 2010-2014Giving Together

The power of partnership between our donors, fund holders and nonprofit organizations continues to positively impact our community.  In 2014, the CFMC, together with its donor advisors, distributed more than $11 million in 935 grants to 415 agencies in Monterey County and beyond. Grants have been steadily increasing, growing 75% since 2010.

The CFMC Board of Directors approved nearly $3.6 million through the foundation’s competitive grants programs and leadership initiatives to strategically invest in community improvements. The deployment of these philanthropic resources contributes to the health and welfare of Monterey County’s youth and most vulnerable and supports key organizations in the areas of community development, culture and the environment.

Partnering with Funders

The CFMC seeks to align its resources for greatest impact, and invites local funding partners to invest in programs such as Girls’ Health in Girls’ Hands and the LEAD Institute. Additional grants from the Peggy and Jack Baskin Foundation, Claire Gianinni FundMonterey Peninsula Foundation, and David and Lucile Packard Foundation, to name a few, supported CFMC programs and initiatives.

The power of partnership = increased investment in healthy, safe and vibrant communities.
