    Great Expectations Fund Expands to Vallejo
    Schools and Nonprofits Eligible for Enrichment Grants

    FAIRFIELD, Calif.:  Vallejo schools and nonprofits looking for youth enrichment funding have a new option – Solano Community Foundation announces the application cycle for grants from The Great Expectations Fund is open now and until 15 May 2020.

    This is a competitive award program, making grants of up to $2,500 each max, to support public schools and qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations serving Fairfield, Suisun, and Vallejo children and youth ages 5 to 20.  The purpose of these grants is to provide low-income and at-risk (at promise) children with a variety of academic, cultural enrichment, and/or character development activities and experiences.

    Specifically, funding will support out-of-town field trips and excursions which expand horizons and cultivate new interests, both academically and culturally.  Nature and travel activities are included, but not attendance at sports events.

    Successful applicants will be those organizations (schools and nonprofit agencies) that have limited or no funding, or lack the ability to raise their own funds for this purpose.

    Grants are not intended to promote religion/religious practices.

    Visit SCF’s website, www.SolanoCF.org for further information and to apply.
