COMMUNITY ACTION GRANTS
The growing success of our annual Morgan Hill Wildflower Run fundraiser enables AAUW Morgan Hill to expand our philanthropic activities, and we are now awarding discretionary grants of up to $1000 each to local charitable organizations.

Completed grant applications must be submitted (AAUW-Morgan Hill, Attn: Community Action Grants, P.O. Box 1528, Morgan Hill, CA 95038) and postmarked no later than December 15. Alternatively, they may be emailed to email@example.com. Successful candidates will be notified of their selection by January 31 of the following year. Funding must be used within that calendar year.
Grants for up to $1000 each will be provided to local non-profit organizations requesting funding for a specific program or expense that is in alignment with AAUW's mission. An organization may request funding for more than one project or program, but separate applications are required for each.
Priority consideration will be given to grant requests in support of:
- A local non-profit organization that is exempt from taxation under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue code.
- A specific program or expense that is in alignment with AAUW's mission. Examples include:
- broad based education programs, for any age group.
- education programs targeted at underserved segments of the population.
- programs specifically targeted at equity for women and girls.
- Events, programs, or projects that have a broad reach or impact, with the opportunity to create long-term value.
- Programs that support individuals from the Morgan Hill community, as defined by the boundaries of the Morgan Hill Unified School District.
- Programs that charge minimal or no fees to participate.
We do not anticipate awarding grants to:
- Benefit individuals or families. (Note: we do offer a separate scholarship program; go to local scholarships for details.)
- For-profit entities.
- Support political or religious purposes.
- Cover costs already incurred.
- Support fundraising events (door prizes, raffles, auctions, etc.).
- Cover operational expenses (except perhaps in the case of a start-up proposal).
- Programs or organizations located outside of the South Bay area.
