Wild Rivers Community Foundation is committed to supporting children and youth and values programs that offer opportunities for them to learn, play and develop in a safe, productive setting while school is not in session. We recognize that organizations offering summer programs for children and youth are integral to providing those opportunities.
Small grants are awarded to agencies to expand and enrich summer recreation programs for Del Norte and Curry County children operating between June and September. Grants are normally made for expenses such as sports and recreational equipment, arts and craft supplies, special events and field trips and camperships for low-income participants.
The Summer Youth Program often provides grants to help defray the costs of transportation, equipment, and scholarships.
