GROW HOPE GRANTS
Each year, the WCSC GROW HOPE Grants Committee solicits applications from nonprofit organizations in South County. The Committee then evaluates and selects grant recipients based on their commitment to our communities. In 2021, our grants focused on those organizations whose programs helped eradicate hunger, provided solutions to homelessness, reduced domestic violence and help improve mental health in our local communities.
