Common Grant Application

The San Diego Common Grant Application (CGA) was designed to help make the grantseeking process simpler and more efficient by allowing nonprofits to complete one application that may be submitted to multiple funders. Common grant applications have become standard practice among grantmakers and regional associations across the country.

With feedback from grantseekers and grantmakers alike, we designed the San Diego Common Grant Application to be as comprehensive as possible. Be sure to research the individual foundations listed below that use the CGA before you fill it out and submit it -- each has different guidelines and funding priorities. Any funder that has agreed to accept this form may request additional information at any stage in the proposal process.

NOTE: You must submit your completed CGA directly to the organization to which you are applying for funding.  Do not submit your CGA to San Diego Grantmakers; we do not provide funding nor can we forward CGAs.
