Southern Monterey County Foundation


To inspire philanthropy and be a catalyst for strengthening communities throughout Southern Monterey County

The Big Idea

This group has a truly regional focus. The Southern Monterey County Foundation (a fund of the Community Foundation for Monterey County) provides an opportunity for businesses and individuals to pool philanthropic resources and invest the funds back into South County by awarding grants to hyper-local efforts serving communities from King City south. The vision overall is to create a safer and more vibrant southern Monterey County.

This is a great opportunity to come together and make a positive difference for South County, now and in the future.

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
