Local charities have received $340,000 in the program’s first five years
Giving Marin Community Partnership awarded $70,000 in grants to 14 nonprofits on March 2 at Marin Country Club in Novato. Marin charities have received $340,000 in the five years since the initiative’s inception.
The $5,000 grant winners, selected among more than 100 applicants, are: Autistry Studios, Call of the Sea, Friends of China Camp, Global Book Exchange, Grace Signs, Make it Home, Marin County Search and Rescue Unit, Marin Shakespeare Company, KWMR, Postpartum Support Center, San Geronimo Valley Community Center, Trips for Kids, Veterans and Equines Together and Wise Choices for Girls.
“This year’s winners often checked multiple boxes … they help Marin’s most vulnerable populations, they focus on equity, they help youth and veterans, they provide safe places to live, they find our loved ones when they are lost,” said Marin Independent Journal President and Publisher Rob Devincenzi. “This diverse group is so deserving. Giving Marin is proud to assist them in their grassroots missions.”
