Since 1996, San Francisco-based Community Initiatives has been supporting community projects, ideas, and partnerships with fiscal sponsorship. With the support of shared 501(c)3 status, and back office services like financial management, human resources, and grant management, sponsored projects can focus on what matters most—delivering public good to communities.

April Featured Project: The FruitGuys Community Fund

The FruitGuys Community Fund will award small American farms and agricultural nonprofits a total of $40,133 in 2016 for sustainability projects intended to have a positive impact on the environment, local food systems, and farm diversity. More than 100 applicants from all over the country applied for the 2016 grants. The 10 recipients were chosen based on their proposed project’s scores in the Community Fund’s 2016 areas of focus: pollination, soil health, water conservation, natural pest control, and energy efficiency. Preference was also given to farms that increase low-income consumers’ access to fresh produce. The 2016 grantees’ farms are located in California, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. Their projects range from organic cover crops and urban orchards to owl box and beehive installations. Learn more about their work on Facebook.
