Landmark Vineyards announced that its 2023 Community Grants applications are now live. Landmark Community Grants provide local schools and non-profits in California’s Russian River Valley and Sonoma Valley with valuable financial assistance and resources. This year Landmark intends to award $80,000 in grants, building on its long-standing commitment to invest in the individuals and organizations that make the communities it serves a better place to live, work, and play.
“At Landmark our goal is to empower the local community to achieve its full potential,” said Molly Scott, director of grower and community relations for Landmark Vineyards. “As active members of the community we understand the needs are best known by the community itself. The Landmark Community Grants program allows our local schools, non-profits and organizations to vocalize what support is needed so their dedication and hard work can continue seamlessly throughout the year and have a positive impact for many more.”
Established in 2014, the Landmark Vineyards Community Grants program has funded over 100 projects supporting classrooms and non-profits, totaling over $650,000. Organizations that receive grants are selected by a committee of employees who volunteer annually to identify those that demonstrate a need for funding impactful projects and services that directly benefit the local community, making it a more equitable place to live, work and play. Previous grant funding has supported the Queer Art Club at the Sonoma Community Center, Art Escape’s Mini Makers program, new appliances for YWCA Sonoma County and mental health services at Reach for Home.
Landmark Vineyards believes that an investment in education is an investment for the future. Out of the total $80,000 in grant funding, $30,000 will directly benefit schools and is designed to provide wide-ranging support for teachers, the school grants fund projects and initiatives to help students learn, grow, and thrive. From musical instruments and graphing calculators to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) materials and innovative virtual field trips, the grants help fund essential classroom supplies and educational opportunities for students in Sonoma County.
Applications will be accepted until February 17, 2023. For more information about eligibility requirements and to submit an application for the Landmark Community Grants, please visit www.landmarkwinegrants.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
