Upcoming Chevron Catalyst Grant Awards announced

The grant recipients of the 2023 Chevron Catalyst Grant Program have been announced!  The competitive grant program is a partnership between the Carlsbad Community Foundation and Chevron.  Chevron established a fund at the Foundation in 2016 and has generously continued to support it each year.  The Foundation is responsible for managing the application process and selecting the recipients based on the guidelines established in the fund.

The Foundation will formally award the grants to 21 organizations at an award reception in February.  Representatives from Chevron will also be there, so the Foundation and the recipient nonprofit organizations can visit with them and thank them for their generosity.
