Landmark Vineyards today announced that its 2021-2022 Community Grants applications are now live. Landmark Vineyards will award a total of $80,000 in grants, of which $30,000 will be specifically reserved for schools in the community, 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.
The Landmark Vineyards Community Grants program supports local schools and non-profits in California’s Russian River Valley and Sonoma Valley. The application cycle will be on a rolling basis and closes once the targets have been reached.
“Our local schools, non-profits, and community-based organizations are the heartbeats of our community,” said Clarence Chia, senior vice president of marketing, eCommerce and direct-to-consumer for Landmark Vineyards. “The Landmark Community Grants program is committed to supporting our neighbors in their work to move their communities forward. It is an honor to support the local individuals and groups that tirelessly dedicate time, energy, and passion to make a difference now, and for generations to come.”
Landmark Vineyards believes that investing in education is an investment in the future. The school grants provide wide-ranging support for teachers – funding projects and initiatives that help students to learn 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 classroom supplies and educational opportunities for students in Sonoma County.
Established in 2014, the Landmark Vineyards Community Grants program was created to support community organizations by funding projects and services that operate at a grassroots level to strengthen the region. Since its launch, Landmark Vineyards has funded over 45 projects, and supported over 100 teachers and 12,700 students, totaling over $490,000. Organizations that receive grants are selected by a committee of employees who volunteer annually to identify worthy organizations that provide projects and services that directly benefit the local community. Previous grant recipients include Farm to Pantry, LifeWorks of Sonoma County, Sonoma County Trails Council, and Valley of the Moon Children’s Home Foundation.
Applications will be accepted until November 30th, 2021. For more information about eligibility requirements and to submit an application for the Landmark Community Grants, please visit www.landmarkwinegrants.com or email [email protected].
