The Morgan Hill Community Foundation (MHCF) is now accepting applications for its annual spring grant cycle, which disburses $5,000 to local, multiple nonprofits. The deadline for submission is March 15, and a copy of the grant application is now available here.

Completed applications should be sent to:

MHCF, Attn: Grants

P.O. Box 1974

Morgan Hill, CA, 95038

One difference to the grant application process this year is that organizations or projects that have been funded for three consecutive years by MHCF will not be considered as a candidate this year.

The 2013 grant winners will be recognized at the MHCF’s annual Grant Awards and Donor Recognition event, scheduled for May 2013.

Over the past decade, the MHCF has granted approximately $400,000 to dozens of local nonprofits and community projects. The most recent grant totaled $10,000 and was given to Community Solutions, a leading South County social services agency in November 2012.

In addition to its grant program, the MHCF, its alliances and past grant recipients have a number of events in the coming weeks to continue supporting the community. Those include the South Valley Athletic Association’s Wine Auction from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. April 12 at the Morgan Hill Community and Cultural Center, and Art a la Carte, a free children’s art fair scheduled for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 27, also at the Morgan Hill Community and Cultural Center.
