WHO WE ARE

The Carmel Valley Women’s Club Foundation is a nonprofit public benefit corporation solely dedicated to charitable and educational purposes, specifically granting scholarships to local women and granting funds to local community nonprofits. Founded in 2013, we are a 501 c (3) nonprofit identified with the California Nonprofit Corporation-FEIN 46-2606323. Our mission is to develop and distribute funds for local scholars and local nonprofits to further their educational and community pursuits. We conduct two major fundraising events in December and in April.
 

PHILANTHROPY POLICY

Our philanthropy policy is set and reviewed annually by the Foundation Board, which appoints two committees: the Community Allocation Committee and the Scholarship Committee to select and recommend distributions to local nonprofits and for scholarship awards. These are presented a June awards luncheon. A new Community Relief Fund was established in 2015 to quickly address emergency situation with funds through an appropriate local nonprofit; nominations may be given to Foundation directors for a board consideration at any time.
 

WHERE DONATIONS GO

The proceeds from donations and fundraising traditionally go 80% to scholarships and 20% to local nonprofits. The Emergency Relief Fund is allocated each June. We consider restricted donations.

In 2015, our efforts included:

  • 19 scholarships totaling $22,000 to qualifying high school graduates
  • 6 grants totaling $6,000 to nonprofits serving Carmel Valley and the Monterey Peninsula
  • A grant of $1,000 of Community Relief Fund to Cachagua Volunteer Firefighters-Tassajara Fire Recovery
