Grant Development

Victor Valley College and the Foundation are proud recipients of a number of grants: federal, state, local, corporate and private. We take great care to manage grant funds responsibly, ensuring that projects are completed on time and within budget. Foundation staff are here to write, edit, or assist in the grant process for all campus employees: faculty, foundation, administration and classified.

Once a need or project has been identified the best approach is to search out a matching funding source, a grant-maker whose mission is to support that specific goal. Occasionally the college or foundation may also reply to a request for proposal (RFP) from a grant-making organization, and approach various staff to see if we have a potential project within that scope. Whatever your dreams are, let us help you achieve them.

If you have a project in mind, contact Catherine Abbott, Executive Director, at (760) 245-4271 x. 2523 or by email.
