Del Mar Foundation announces grant deadline

Have a great idea for a project in Del Mar? For 27 years the Del Mar Foundation has been serving the community of greater Del Mar through not just its own programming but with seed money for worthwhile community projects.

The Oct. 1 deadline is approaching for the next round of grants.

The Foundation is best known for the popular summer concerts at Powerhouse Park, its monthly First Thursdays cultural arts series, marvelous programs for children, support of the city’s Junior Lifeguard Program, contributing funds toward the restoration and construction of the Del Mar Library and the Powerhouse Community Center, and for helping to preserve the lagoons to the north and south of Del Mar. Recent grant monies have also helped area elementary schools, the newly planned Beach Safety Center, and open space funds directed to the Del Mar Shores acquisition project.

The mission of the Del Mar Foundation is to promote civic pride and cohesiveness, acquire and preserve open space, improve beaches and parklands, raise and grant funds, and sponsor diverse cultural programs and community events in Del Mar.
