Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club seeking applicants for grants to community organizations


The Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club is requesting applications to award funding for projects or initiatives that meet the organization’s mission to “further the development of charitable horticulture and charitable conservation activities, both within and outside the community of Rancho Santa Fe.”

Applicants should show relevancy to the Garden Club mission, being technically and economically feasible, ensuring that all those actively involved in the project will benefit from the results, addressing a community need, and facilitating the transfer of technology, skills and knowledge to others.

Thanks to the income from the recent sale of the Garden Club property, awards will be made to successful grant applicants upon recommendation by the Grant Committee to the Board of Directors. Organizations eligible to apply for grants include community-based 501(c)3 charitable organizations and public educational institutions.

The Grant Application information, and related details outlining the criteria that applicants must satisfy, is available at or by contacting Executive Director Erin Browne at 858-756-1554 or

Grant applications must be received by noon May 1 to be considered. Grant winners will be notified and invited to receive their award at the Garden Club’s annual meeting to be held May 28.
