Where to Find Grant Funding
The San Francisco Foundation Center provides guidance to non-profits on grant seeking engagements. Free classes, special training programs (fee-based), access to grant databases (complimentary at the computer center), and other resources are available on site.
Many city agencies and local organizations offer grants through a competitive application process. A sample list of local grant programs related to urban agriculture, gardening, and similar program areas includes:
- City and County of San Francisco’s Community Challenge Grant Program
- San Francisco Recreation and Park Department's Community Opportunity Fund
