CARLSBAD — New Village Arts Theatre in the Carlsbad Village was the setting for the fourth annual Fall Social of the Carlsbad Charitable Foundation. CCF members pool their contributions to provide grants to Carlsbad nonprofits and to build a long-term endowment focused on Carlsbad.
In its fourth grant cycle, this year’s CCF focus is the Carlsbad environment and the evening’s speakers were experts in the field Emily Young of the San Diego Foundation and Ken Ryan of Waste Management. Each provided data regarding the current state of Carlsbad’s environment, gave examples of how environmental grants have been/could be used in the future, and offered recycling information.
“The Carlsbad community has a history of protecting its air, water, and natural lands. The Carlsbad Charitable Foundation has a great opportunity to deepen and expand community based efforts to protect these resources that enhance our quality of life, through charitable support to local nonprofits working in this area,” said Emily Young, director for the environment, The San Diego Foundation.
“At Waste Management, we continue to see an increasing demand for green solutions. We are committed to doing our part to be sustainable in all aspects of our business and protect the environment and precious resources we all share,” Ken Ryan, Waste Management said.
CCF’s grant guidelines are available to nonprofit organizations that provide environmental services or projects. The grant application deadline is Jan. 10, 2011. Guidelines may be reviewed at www.carlsbadcharitablefoundation.org.
