DEL MAR TIMES

What's your big idea?

By Barbara Myers

The Del Mar Foundation board will be assessing grant applications at their October meeting. It is the third granting period and final one for this calendar year. The board welcomes applications with ideas or programs that need seed money and will benefit our community.

The history of the Foundation grants includes money for the children's history of Del Mar, done by the DMTV Foundation, start up funds for Community Connections, funding for the Junior Lifeguard program and funds to help the Clean Up Del Mar committee get started. Ideas can originate with Del Mar Foundation board members or residents of Del Mar with a great idea.

The Foundation welcomes applications and looks forward to the creative and interesting beginnings that can make a difference in Del Mar. Grant applications are available by calling the Del Mar Foundation at (858) 635-1363 or request an application by mail at Del Mar Foundaiton, P.O. Box 2913, Del Mar, CA 92014. The deadline for the applications is October 1, 2004.
