Our Grants & Programs

The Imperial Valley Community Foundation has several funds with periodic grant cycles.  When one of these funds is taking applications, we will announce it, and give information on how to apply.

Since 2009, the Foundation has awarded nearly $1M in grants and scholarships to benefit Imperial Valley's residents and organizations.

Prior to its revitalization, the Foundation made early significant grants to support healthcare and the arts in Imperial Valley to help with construction and expansion projects for: Pioneers Memorial Hospital, Palmer Auditorium, El Centro Regional Medical Center, and the Southwest Performing Arts Theatre.
