Save Our Non-Profits Grant Program
The Grant Program is Now Closed
Fresno’s non-profits have provided essential services during the COVID-19 crisis including those the most impacted by this public and health crisis. For many, their normal activities to raise money and support their operations have also been interrupted by the shut-down. In recognition of their importance to our community and the economic disruption that they too have suffered, the City of Fresno City Council has allocated $500,000 in grant funding for Fresno non-profits.
Applications were accepted through 11:59 PST on November 29, 2020. After a random selection of eligible applicants, recipients of Save Our Non-Profits funding have been notified of their grant awards.
Instructions for Grant Recipients
Prior to disbursement of funds, each recipient organization must provide qualifying documentation that meets the requirements of the CARES Act. All documents should be signed and submitted by the person currently registered as the Principal Officer of the non-profit with the IRS.
Each grant recipient must provide the following prior to the deadline of 5 pm PST December 9, 2020:
- a copy of the principal officer’s driver’s license
- a copy of a canceled check from the organization’s checking account or a bank account verification letter including the routing number and account number
