We are committed to supporting financial strength and building organizational capacity. Our grant-making continues to be an important source of funds in the region and through the Center for Community we are helping leverage resources and increase impact.
For more than fifty years CVCF has been a trusted partner in philanthropy in the Valley. Over the last decade, we have granted over $100 million to 750 agencies and organizations who are working to create positive change in our region.
Though the majority of our grants are directed to nonprofits by our fundholders according to their own interests, our Foundation-directed grantmaking continues to grow, and we are committed to supporting an array of funding opportunities that serve the diverse needs of our community.
