Marin Charitable provides funds to nonprofit organizations with youth-oriented programs or projects proactively addressing the needs of middle and high school aged youth (approx. age 11-18), who have limited opportunities and reside in Marin County. Marin Charitable prefers to fund small-budgeted, grassroots programs.

  1. Relevance of program to Marin Charitable’s mission

  2. Capability of applicant to facilitate program

  3. Direct Impact: ability of applicant to ensure children with limited resources are receiving grant funds
