The Cambria Community Council is proud to have funded over $1,315,233 in grants to our local non-profit organizations since 1996 including those that support the youth, seniors, animals, emergency agencies, the ranch land, the library and the arts in our community.
Each year the Country Coast Classic, Inc. donates substantial proceeds from the Annual Country Coast Classic Bike Ride to the Cambria Community Council. These funds are specifically allocated to fund youth activities. The Country Coast Classic can be contacted by mail at PO Box 6, Cambria, CA 93428. Website http://countrycoastclassic.org/.
The annual grant process for the Cambria Community Council is as follows. To be eligible for a grant you must be a non-profit organization and complete a grant application. The process has changed this year. The Grant Applications will be emailed out to past recipients on August 1, 2021. We are asking organizations to provide a completed application by email to Suzanne Kennedy no later than October 1, 2021. The Council will then review the applications and hold a meeting on October 27, 2021 (via zoom, info to follow) 6:00 p.m. where organizations will be asked to give a short presentation and answer any questions the Council might have. Grants will be presented at the November 10, 2021 meeting at Santa Rosa Church, 6:00 p.m. if allowed by COVID-19 restrictions at that time.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Suzanne Kennedy by email or by phone at 1 (805) 909-0917.

Annual Grant Process
Every fall our annual grant applications are made available to organizations that are legally recognized as having non-profit status. The proceeds of the grants must benefit the Cambria community. A member of the organization is required to bring the completed application to the October meeting and give a brief report on the request being made. The Board of Directors meets and reviews all the applications. Grants are funded at our November meeting. Organizations are invited to attend our April annual meeting where our Board is elected also, but this is not required.
Non-profits that would like to receive email notification of this process and receive notice of our meeting dates please e-mail CCC Secretary, Suzanne Kennedy or call 1 (805) 909-0917.
The Council invites you to send us photos showing your grant funds in action. We will display the photos on our home page so we ask that you complete the release form provided below.
