Apply for a Grant
Agencies must have
the ECF California invitation code to apply
for grant consideration. If your organization
meets our guidelines and your programs are based
in our service area, please contact the ECF
California office regarding the invitation code. Please
note that the application link will take you
outside the ECF of Boeing California's web site.
The deadline for 2016 grant applications by
quarter are below:
Requirement: Financial information from the most current fiscal year must include organization expense detail classifying expenses as general and administrative, fundraising or program support, (e.g., 990 statement of functional expenses or something similar).

Organizations are selected from those that assist people and cities in areas where employees of Boeing California primarily reside (Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Ventura, Riverside and San Diego counties).
To be considered for a grant, organizations must have an Internal Revenue Service designation as a nonprofit, tax-exempt public charity, a 501(c)(3) for at least one year. The Fund’s fiscal year begins January 1, and requests for funding are considered quarterly. Repeat requests will not be considered in the same year. A grant does not necessarily indicate that continued support will be available.
Note: It is strongly recommended that an agency have a referral from a Boeing employee who donates to the Pooled Fund of ECF.
Areas that are not considered for grants because of policy, budget limitations, and/or federal law include:
Political organizations or programs
Fraternal, sectarian, social, religious, auxiliaries, service clubs, or similar groups
Youth sports organizations and educational institutions—except those dedicated solely to the disabled
Organizations supported in large part by government funding—except joint government and private enterprise projects
Trips, tours, or fund-raising sponsorship (of individuals)
Fund-raising events, including courtesy advertising, conferences, or dinner tickets
