The Grant Program

The West Sacramento Foundation is a California non-profit public benefit corporation formed in 1988 to conduct fund-raising activities for the benefit of nonprofit organizations in West Sacramento.


Grant applications are open until until fall 2020. The deadline to submit an application has been extended to enable all organizations understand their needs and apply for a grant in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. 

The West Sacramento Foundation provides grants to registered 501(c)3 organizations that directly benefit the residents of West Sacramento. We usually award grants in the range of $150 to $2,000. Applications that have matching funds from another source are more likely to be awarded.

Grants are not awarded for:

  • General operating expenses 

  • Grants, salaries, stipends or similar

  • Fundraisers, including annual campaigns and capital campaigns

  • Endowments

  • Individuals

  • Private foundations

  • Retire existing debt or replenish resources used to retire debt

  • Projects that exceed one year

  • Projects or organizations that did not submit reports for previous awards

The Foundation does not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, ancestry, age, veteran status, disability, genetic information, military service, or other protected status, and will not make a grant to any organizations or agency that does.
