Menlo Park: Facebook offers grants for Belle Haven and EPA nonprofits

Applications due May 1

Nonprofits with "a history of proven success" in Belle Haven and East Palo Alto can now apply for $3,000 to $5,000 grants available through Facebook's community foundation.

The nonprofits must be registered as 501c(3) organizations. In East Palo Alto, applicants should be programs that give kids access to and training in computers and social media, run weekend learning-based activities for teens, or support high school seniors heading to college.

Public agencies and schools are not eligible, although a nonprofit may apply if it provides services on a school campus.

Go to the foundation's website for more information. Applications are due May 1, and grant recipients will be notified by June 1.
