Funding Opportunities & Grant Applications Hub

Choose Folsom supports our community by donating tickets for auction prizes OR by purchasing event tickets for the fundraising efforts of Folsom non-profit and community organizations. Due to the number of inquiries we receive, we are not able to fulfill every request. We also have a limited budget and do our best to spread the support. Please be aware requests may not be funded every year, or specific requests may not be fulfilled. Additional criteria for consideration of a donation include whether the organization is based in Folsom or supports the Folsom community and whether the organization is an active member of the Folsom Chamber of Commerce. Please submit requests at least one month prior to your event.
