Chula Vista Community Foundation (CVCF), a regional affiliate of the San Diego Foundation, has announced grant funding availability for education-focused projects.

In the 2024 cycle, CVCF will award $10,000 to $50,000 to education projects that support the Chula Vista community. Projects can include, but are not limited to:

  • Science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)
  • Literacy
  • Experiences in the arts and culture
  • Apprenticeships, internships, alternative learning or technical training
  • College preparedness
  • Small business training/assistance 
  • Increased access and resources for those facing barriers

CVCF is interested in receiving proposals demonstrating how the projects will benefit Chula Vista. The proposals should be new, innovative, or expansive while positively impacting the community through providing education. To be successful, the proposals must have a beneficial, positive impact in Chula Vista, with verifiable, measurable, and scalable outcomes. They should also aim to maximize the impact of the grant dollars and be innovative, new, or expansive.

“Education is a difference maker,” Lisa Johnson, CVCF board chair. “We want to support projects positioned to increase opportunity, build skill sets, and/or foster creativity and innovation through education.”
