2018 Community Grants

West Marin Fund is currently reviewing all proposals received in our 2018 round of community grants for nonprofits serving coastal West Marin: Muir Beach, Stinson Beach, Bolinas, Olema, Nicasio, Point Reyes Station, Inverness, Marshall, Tomales and Dillon Beach.

With this community grants round, West Marin Fund seeks to support activities that strengthen the effectiveness of nonprofits so that they better address the opportunities and challenges facing West Marin. Proposals must show clearly what organizational improvements will take place, and how this will benefit West Marin and its communities.


Grant range: A total of $100,000 will be awarded for this round. The minimum amount awarded is $1,000 and the maximum $5,000.

Community Grants: For information about previous community grants, please see grants awarded.

PLEASE NOTE: In consultation with a variety of stakeholders, West Marin Fund is changing our community grants cycle to once a year, starting May 2018. The intention is to increase the individual grant size, increase the total amount awarded each year, and reduce administrative work for all concerned. We are also planning to award a handful of grants in the $10,000-$15,000 range each year that address specific challenges in West Marin.

If you have any questions with regards to your application, please contact Carolyn Placente.
