Regranting Through Marin Charitable Ensures Direct Impact

Marin Charitable’s effective system of granting ensures donations reach youth in Marin County who need it most. A rigorous process for screening non-profits has been established to identify the deepest needs each year. Qualified applicants are interviewed on-site by a member of the Marin Charitable grant committee. Each awardee is then required to submit a progress report.

Before writing a check to an organization we conduct a minimum of 27 hours of due diligence, which includes program analysis, financial analysis, site visits, and interviews with organizations leadership. Grant applicants are evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Relevance of program to Marin Charitable mission

  • Capability of applicant to facilitate program

  • Direct impact: ability of applicant to ensure children with limited opportunities receives the grant funds


Above and beyond granting, Marin Charitable also identifies and offers hands-on volunteer opportunities for Marin Charitable members and their families.
