The Community Enrichment Fund (CEF) was created to allow the Junior League of Oakland-East Bay Inc. to contribute to the financial needs of community agencies located in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. Community Agencies are eligible to apply for and receive a Grant once a year, during JLOEB’s fiscal year, running from June 1st through May 31st. Typically, we try to focus our grant giving to agencies that match our impact area. We are Women Building Better Communities by impacting the lives of women and children.
CEF grants are funded annually by distributions from the Maridel M. Moulton Sustainability Fund. All qualified 501(c)3 agencies in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties are invited to apply for a grant. Submissions are evaluated and selected by members of the Community Programs Council. Semifinalists are subject to both a telephone interview and site visit. The Board of Directors approves the final grant recipients and grant amount awarded.
The 2020-2021 Grant Application will be available in Fall 2020.
