About the Foundation
Founded in 1981, the Alhambra Foundation has been supporting the community through various programs including a scholarship program and other support initiatives. In 2022, the Foundation rebranded and renewed its focus on building the capacity of organizations seeking to support and improve the Alhambra Community. While formal, organizational grant program is being developed and is expected to launch in 2024, the Foundation will work to support the collective capacity building and programs to support the Alhambra community.
The Alhambra Foundation supports individuals and organizations to maximize their impact and strengthen the Alhambra community.
PROJECTS AND PROGRAMS
Working with the dozens of nonprofit organizations located or working in Alhambra, the Alhambra Foundation is working to raise funds and awareness for these important civic organizations. The initial effort will be a collective marketing under Alhambra Cares.
In 2022, with the support of Wells Fargo, the Alhambra Foundation worked with the Alhambra Chamber of Commerce to provide grants to 40 small, only-in-Alhambra restaurants.. As the nation continues to recover from the pandemic, small businesses everywhere are also working towards recovery, and we wanted to provide support to the diverse restaurants in Alhambra as they work towards economic recovery.
The Foundation is reworking this program and will be relaunching it in 2024.
