The Del Mar Foundation is a 501(c)(3) California Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation dedicated to promoting civic pride and community cohesiveness, acquiring and preserving open space, improving beaches and parklands, raising and granting funds, and sponsoring diverse cultural programs and community events in Del Mar.
Del Mar Foundation gives preference to projects, activities, and direct provision of services to, for, and within the Del Mar community that fit within and further its mission, and to Del Mar organizations that do not have ready access to other sources of funding. Priority is given to not-for-profit entities. The Foundation makes every effort to distribute funds evenly throughout the year so that funds are available to fund grant requests at each of the grant deadlines. The Foundation is also willing to support organizations in other ways, such as providing organizational fundraising and marketing expertise as well as providing “seed” funding for fundraising and other ongoing activities.
The Foundation accepts grant applications at any time. An applicant may apply as often as needed. There are no minimum grant amounts; maximum grant awards are based in part on the current year’s grant budget.
