The Yerba Buena Community Benefit District (YBCBD) provides grants to neighborhood nonprofits through its Community Benefit Fund. The updated Guidelines are attached.

As the coronavirus pandemic quickly and significantly changed our daily lives, neighborhoods, and economy, the YBCBD Board of Directors recently approved changes to the organization’s approach and guidelines for Community Benefit Fund Grants. For Fiscal Year 2020-2021, $125,000 in grants will specifically support nonprofits headquartered in the Yerba Buena neighborhood. Grants up to $15,000 may be awarded to organizations that have received a grant since FY16, have an annual budget of less than $5M, are headquartered in Yerba Buena, and clearly state how funds will be used to address organizational challenges related to the pandemic.
