Humboldt-based nonprofit organizations seeking funding assistance for programs serving local youth are invited to apply, including first-time and eligible former applicants.

Since 1971, Humboldt Sponsors has distributed more than $2,835,000 in grants to benefit Humboldt County children. 

These individual grants support many diverse activities and programs for local youth, such as scholarships and camperships for recreational and cultural activities, youth leadership projects, as well as the purchase of educational, learning and play materials for children. In addition, Humboldt Sponsors’ grants have assisted youth oriented programs that provide basic needs.
