Nonprofit Grant Funding

Local Nonprofits Encouraged to Submit Grant Applications to City of St. Helena 

The City of St. Helena is opening fiscal year 2024/25 funding applications for nonprofits that directly serve the community and/or benefit the City in accordance with the City's Mission Statement. Projects must be completed between July 1, 2024, and June 30, 2025.

Applicants may apply for project or program funding that support the funding philosophy criteria below:

  • Projects or programs which promote or benefit the St. Helena community with arts, culture, education, or support youth/family health and well-being initiatives and services. The minimum grant request is $1,000 and the maximum grant request is $20,000. The overall funding available is expected to be $120,000 per fiscal year. 

Funding Philosophy:

The City encourages innovation and a goal of self‐sufficiency for all initiatives funded by this program within 24 months. Accordingly, all organizations requesting funds from the City should continue efforts to develop stable private funding sources. Submission of a complete application does not guarantee funding nor does receiving an award in the prior funding year.

This year applications will be accepted electronically only. 

*Please note there are 2 different applications based on amount of funding being requested.

Applications are due on or before February 23, 2024 by 5:00 p.m.

Because there are limitations on what initiatives can be funded, City staff is available to answer questions before applications are prepared.

To discuss a proposed project, set up a meeting to review a proposed application, or to ask any questions, please email Stephanie Killingsworth or call (707) 968-2750.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion:

Consistent with the City’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Strategy, submissions that identify and foster inclusion, belonging, and social justice are encouraged. The City Council adopted Resolution 2020‐105: Affirming that Discrimination and Systemic Racism Constitute A Public Health Crisis Causing Disparities in Mental Wellbeing, Language Access, Housing, Economic Development, Health, and Criminal Justice Experience, and Reaffirming its Commitment to Advancing Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in the City.
