The Idyllwild Community Fund, a fund of The Community Foundation Serving the Counties of Riverside and San Bernardino, is currently accepting grant proposals from qualified nonprofit organizations through May 5, 2014.

The Idyllwild Community Fund was established in 1997 by anonymous donors for the benefit of the Idyllwild community.

The Fund’s advisory committee of local community residents is dedicated to improving the quality of life for residents of Idyllwild.  The advisory board will give funding preference to the following areas:  Arts and Culture, Human Services, Environment, and Emergency Preparedness.

Last year, the fund awarded over $12,000 in support to qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofits.
