Applying For a Grant

The McLean Foundation seeks to fund a broad range of program areas.

It strives to make grants that will have a lasting impact for the people and community of Humboldt County. Only nonprofit organizations within Humboldt County may apply for funding.

The Foundation looks favorably on projects that serve the Eel River Valley and Southern Humboldt but our emphasis does not dismiss our desire to review requests from the larger Humboldt County Community.

If after reviewing the Grant Guidelines you believe that your organization’s project qualifies, please login to submit application.


The McLean Foundation has upgraded to a new online Grant management System. This system will allow an increase in accessibility for our grantees. With the new system, grantees will be able to apply, track current grant process and have access to past grant history.  If you have never applied for a grant before, you will need to set a up a new user name and password.
