Foundation awards grants
The Carlsbad Community Foundation awarded grants to 20 local organizations, as part of a new initiative made possible by a partnership between the Foundation and Chevron Products Company. Chevron established the Chevron Catalyst Fund from which the Foundation may award small to medium-sized grants for diverse charitable needs in the community. This year’s grants, which were presented at a celebration on February 6, ranged in size from about $500 to $5,000 and combined exceeded $55,000.
