2019 GRANT CYCLE Resources

Building A Better Bay Area 

Since 2000, Full Circle Fund has partnered with over 100 organizations at all different stages. We grant to 501(c)(3) organizations or fiscally-sponsored projects. 
How we partner

In 2019 we'll select up to 8 organizations and award a financial grant of $15,000 and define a project or initiative to complete over the course of six months. When an organization joins the Full Circle Fund portfolio, we call them a Grant Partner. 


The work we do is based on the needs of our Grant Partner and the abilities of our Members. But all of our teams will partner with organizations using this framework.​
