Thank you for stepping up.
-The Monterey County Gives! team.
To inspire philanthropy and be a catalyst for strengthening communities throughout Monterey County
We are at a crossroads in our country and our community, where understanding and acceptance of our cultural, religious and political differences must be promoted and celebrated. That’s why the Community Foundation for Monterey County created the Monterey County Tolerance and Acceptance Fund. The aim of the initiative is to create a sustainable path to fund nonprofit projects that promote acceptance of Monterey County’s rich cultural diversity and different lived experiences. This fund will make grants to projects that support a vision of healthy, safe, vibrant communities.
We come from different backgrounds and perspectives. Now in this moment of history, we must celebrate the contributions of our experiences, and work to understand and embrace our differences.
