Submission Deadline: October 17, 2017

Thank you for your interest in the Folsom Garden Club’s Grants Program. The Folsom Garden Club started offering grants in 2012 in addition to our Scholarship Program, using funds we raise from our annual “FGC Garden Tour.”  We have awarded a total of twenty-six grants amounting to $25,335.  The Club assists in non-profit community efforts to fund worthwhile projects or programs that fulfill the mission of the Club.

Folsom Garden Club is dedicated to spreading the knowledge and love of gardening and horticulture, the support of education in horticultural and related fields and the beautification of public and/or historic property.

The Club offers cash grants to non-profit organizations within the city of Folsom. These grants normally range from $200 to $1,500; however, the Grants Committee will consider and evaluate requests for other amounts.

Your grants application for our “2017 Grants Program” must be submitted by October 17, 2017.
