Grants & LoansGrants › Stinson/Bolinas Community Fund

The Stinson/Bolinas Community Fund was created by Stinson Beach and Bolinas residents as a way to support local community efforts. The fund was also designed to encourage local residents to make a difference in their community.

History of the Stinson/Bolinas Community Fund

This fund was created and is supported by a group of local donors. The founders act as advisors, recommending which projects should be supported by this community effort. The maximum grant the fund provides is $3,000 per grant cycle, and there is no minimum amount.



To be eligible, an organization's project must benefit the Stinson Beach and/or Bolinas communities. Projects that do not specifically benefit the Stinson Beach and/or Bolinas communities will not be considered for funding.

Application materials are available at the Bolinas and Stinson Beach Libraries and from the fund's website. You can mail materials to:

Stinson/Bolinas Community Fund
Attn: Belle Wood
P.O. Box 367
Stinson Beach, CA 94970
