The purpose of the Costa Mesa Community Foundation is to raise money to support
and promote community projects within the City of Costa Mesa as designated and
selected by the Board of Directors.
CONCERTS IN THE PARK
The Concerts in the Park series represents the culmination of our efforts throughout the year. Through this summertime event, we raise money that we put to use as future grants.
Community Grants Program
The Foundation's Community Grants Program takes funds from Concerts in the Park and awards grants in the areas of Youth Education & Recreation; Park Enhancements; Public Safety, and Community Pride Initiatives.
Costa Mesa's Bridge Shelter provides sleeping quarters, restrooms, showers, meals, social services and a path to establishing permanent housing. Funds offset the professional operations of the facility.
LIONS PARK LIBRARY PROJECTS
Lions Park is the home of a new two-story, 20,000 square foot library building, renovated Neighborhood Community Center, and an acre of park open space event lawn for fun, family, and educational events.
