Community Impact Grants + Scholarships 

This team addresses the needs of the San Diego Community and partners with organizations to help support specific projects that directly impact the youth in our community. Organizations apply for the grants and this group collectively decides on the yearly partners and projects. This group also presents checks to the partner organizations throughout the year. 

This team also works with the local universities and key clubs to provide annual scholarships to students in need. The team reviews the applications and arranges for an annual awards ceremony in the Spring.
