Common Good Foundation accepting applications
In December of 2022, the Common Good Community Foundation awarded grants totaling $5,700 to four local organizations including Plumas Community Radio, dramaworks, Plumas Charter School and the Lost Sierra Food Project. With its Spring funding cycle about to begin, the Common Good is again inviting local nonprofits to submit grant applications during the month of May.
Grants are limited to $1,500 and applications must be emailed or postmarked by May 31. Organizations may or may not receive the total amount requested, depending on the number of grants received, as well as the actual amount available for funding in the spring cycle. Awards will be announced in late June.
First-time applicants will be given priority, but some grant recipients have been funded multiple times since the Common Good was founded in 2012. The one limitation is that funding is awarded to the same organization only once in a two-year period. The main objective of the Common Good is to support nonprofits throughout Plumas County, as well as fund a wide variety of projects and organizations.
