The application period for consideration for the fiscal year 13-14 has now closed. Due to a large number of applications received, we will not be accepting any more applications until next spring. Please check back in April 2014 for the next funding cycle. Thank you, Blue Diamond Community Relations.
Blue Diamond's Charitable Contribution Program and Good Neighbor Policy reflects our four core values: Partnership, Quality, Innovation and Integrity. It is our policy to build meaningful relationships with neighboring organizations in the communities in which we do business - Sacramento, Salida and Turlock, California. Of primary importance to Blue Diamond is the development and investment in these regions by supporting those community organizations that most benefit the quality of life of youth in each of these communities.
To request funding, please download and complete the form at the bottom of this page and return it to Blue Diamond any time between April and June. All requests are reviewed in July and notifications are emailed out in late August. Please note that funding is distributed during the following fiscal year from when applications are received (fiscal years run from September 1 through August 31). We fully allocate all funds, so mid-year requests are considered the following fiscal year.
To maximize our impact on our target audience, Blue Diamond no longer provides free product or gift baskets to organizations for raffled, door prizes or other purposes.
