United Way of the Wine Country announces the availability of small grants for projects, programs, organizations and coalitions that will further the overall goal of the Map One Sonoma initiative committed to fostering a prosperous, resilient, inclusive, and sustainable Sonoma County where everyone has an opportunity to thrive.
Launched in the immediate aftermath of the October 2017 firestorm by Community Foundation Sonoma County with support from the Hewlett Foundation, Map One Sonoma was created with the input of community leaders and practitioners as a platform for discussion of the ideal future state for Sonoma County.
The MAP OneSonoma Grant Committee will be prioritizing innovative proposals that:
- Impact one or ideally more than one of the levers identified by the MAP OneSonoma process (listed in the RFP).
- Advance racial equity
- Involve collaboration across sectors
- Engage marginalized communities, especially at the decision making level.
