The Crockett Community Foundation was established to oversee annual community fund donations given to the community of Crockett by Crockett Cogeneration and C&H Sugar Co. as part of a settlement agreement. The foundation receives donations and grants from other sources as well.
A portion of foundation funds has been designated to establish a perpetual endowment and is thus restricted. The remainder of funds is referred to as unrestricted or discretionary. These are the funds that grant-seekers may apply for using these guidelines.
Grants are made semi-annually in December and June. Click here for more information about applying during the regular grant cycle. You can download the grant application form.
The Crockett Community Foundation also has a micro-grant process. This process was set up to fulfill the Unocal Fund Agreement, and allows for a quicker and simpler funding mechanisms for very small grant requests ($1,000 and under). Download the microgrant application.
