Chevron Catalyst Grant Program provides 20 grants to Carlsbad area nonprofits

The Carlsbad Community Foundation recently awarded 20 grants to local nonprofit organizations as part of its Chevron Catalyst Grant Program. See the list of grant awardees below.

The charitable partnership with Chevron was established in 2016, with the first grants awarded in 2018.

Chevron supports the fund annually, and the Foundation implements the program and selects recipients through a competitive grant process. This year, grants awarded were valued at over $67,000. To date, the Foundation has awarded over $463,000 in grants from the fund.

“This is a win-win for everyone,” said Foundation Board President Bill Kingston. “The Foundation and Chevron get to support the charitable missions of local nonprofit organizations and as a result, our community benefits on both an individual and overall basis.”

Mark McCulley, the Chevron Delaware Basin Operations Superintendent, said the initiative “demonstrates Chevron’s commitment to making a meaningful impact and supporting the well-being of the Carlsbad community.

“Chevron looks forward to the grantees effecting positive change and resilience in this community,” McCulley said.
