Community Support | Grants

Since its inception DARTS has distributed over $2 MILLION to Orange County non-profit organizations that help and empower women and children to achieve their potential as responsible contributing members of our community. Funds are available through an annual grant application process. Organizations may apply for funds for a specific project or a general grant, but definitive goals and anticipated outcomes are essential.


  • Must be a non-profit organization
  • Emphasis is upon helping women, children and families
  • Must serve local communities in Orange County

DARTS does not provide support for:

  • Funding operating budgets
  • Capital campaigns
  • Individuals


Most grants range from $5,000 to $25,000. The current Grant Summary and Grant Application are posted to the DARTS website each year on December 1.
Applications are due February 15, at which time the application window closes.

Recipients are announced in May and grants are distributed in June.
