    General Operating Support Grants for Nonprofits
    Solano Community Foundation Announces New Funding Opportunity for Nonprofits
    FAIRFIELD, Calif.:  Solano Community Foundation is offering a new funding opportunity for members of their Nonprofit Partnership Program.  Nonprofits, especially smaller nonprofits, often have a difficult time generating enough money to cover operating expenses adequately.  Many funders will grant monies for a specific program, and sometimes a small percentage of the grant may be allocated to overhead or operating expenses, but few funders will award general operating monies outright.  SCF seeks to remedy this situation.

    From now through noon on September 6, 2019, qualified 501 (c)(3) nonprofit  members of SCF’s Nonprofit Partnership Program may apply for a general unrestricted grant of up to $7,500 for their organizations.  Preference will be given to nonprofits that address homelessness, domestic violence, and economic inequity issues.  Nonprofits that are not currently NPP members may apply for one of these grants as soon as they join. 

    The application form and RFP are both available to download from the NPP program page on the SCF website, www.SolanoCF.org.  To apply for a General Operating Support grant, applicants should first download and read the eligibility requirements found in the Request for Proposals (RFP) document on the SCF website.

    The NPP fee is $75 annually and entitles any two people from the organization to attend any or all of SCF’s professional development and capacity-building workshops (ten or more per year), and participate in other NPP activities such as Give Local Solano on #GivingTuesday.  Anyone, whether a business, organization, or a private individual, who wishes to support the work of nonprofits may become an NPP member.  To join, visit the SCF website, and follow the link on the home page.
