Healdsburg Forever provides grants to Sonoma County nonprofit organizations serving the Healdsburg and Geyserville communities. The county-wide initiatives Health Action, Upstream Investments, and Cradle to Career are important strategic efforts to strengthen communities, and so Healdsburg Forever seeks every opportunity to align our grants with these initiatives for maximum impact. Our vision is to ensure that the Healdsburg-Geyserville area is a sustainable, inclusive community in which all individuals have the opportunity to thrive.
Healdsburg Forever grant applications are accepted in the following areas:
Applicants must be able to demonstrate that their program or project is specifically serving the communities of Healdsburg and/or Geyserville.
Grants in Health & Human Services and Youth Development & Education will continue to be prioritized, but Healdsburg Forever will seek to fund across the four program areas in order to support a sustainable and inclusive community.
Health & Human Services and Youth Development & Education: Operational and programmatic requests up to $10,000
Arts Education & Environmental Education: Programmatic requests up to $5,000.
The number of grants awarded is not pre-determined. Typically our grant amounts range from $2,000 to $10,000.
In 2016, we have revised our grant criteria in order to provide greater clarity to applicants. We recommend that non-profits that are considering applying for funding carefully review the criteria to evaluate whether their request is a fit for this funding. Please contact Karin Demarest, firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
