Grants for nonprofit needs


The West Marin Fund is now accepting applications for its third round of small grants for nonprofits serving coastal Marin County. The one-time grants, no larger than $5,000, may be used for whatever organizations need most to do their work, including fundraising training for staff, legal assistance, web development or the purchase of new software or hardware. The deadline to apply is March 14. Funds will be distributed April 15 and must be spent by Jan. 15, 2015. A brief report and record of expenditures will be due Feb. 28, 2015. Priority will be given to proposals that result in improving an organization’s capacity to provide service to West Marin. For more information about the fund, or to learn how to apply, email
