Grants are awarded based on various criteria, including the impact on youth in the Palisades, the number of youth impacted by the program seeking the grant, the effectiveness of the program and the likely longevity of the program.
Applications may be mailed to the Pacific Palisades Optimist Club at P.O. Box 211, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272, and must be received by February 15 for consideration. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
