The Farrington Historical Foundation is now accepting applications for its Spring 2022 Community Grants. The deadline to submit an application is Thursday, May 12.
Located in San Jose, the Farrington Historical Foundation’s mission is to promote appreciation of Santa Clara Valley’s heritage and support the community for future generations. Its grants provide funding for projects and services that elevate the quality of life for Santa Clara County’s residents.
