The Community Enrichment grant program is made possible through the Community Foundation's Community Endowment Fund. The Community Endowment has been built by contributions that vary from a check for twenty-five dollars to an estate gift valued at over a million dollars. 

Donors who give to the Community Endowment Fund know their gifts will be used here in Mendocino County for long-term benefit in the County.
