Our Mission: Offering support in communities where we work and live…Fueling innovative grassroots programming in The Arts, Animal Welfare and Music Education.

Since the early days, Lagunitas has focused on supporting our communities where we work and play. Now more than twenty years later we’ve grown and expanded our support with the new Community Grant Program. In order to make the most impact, we have narrowed our focus to the following three areas:

  • The Community Grant Program concentrates funding in the areas of: Animal Welfare, The Arts and Music Education. 
  • Grants range from $1,000-$5,000.
  • Proposals will be accepted based on current cycles in geographic areas.
  • All proposals should be submitted via our website. Sorry, no applications will be accepted by mail, email or fax.
  • Please submit only one grant proposal per organization. 

Unfortunately, the Lagunitas Grant Program is unable to fund some organizations. We DO, however, have other programs that fund sponsorships, and all sorts of other nonprofits.  Check www.lagunitas.com  for more information or Click here for more info »
