The Palm Springs Sisters Emergency Grant Request Form


The Palm Springs Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence have had a long history here in the Coachella Valley offering assistance to a variety of local non-profit support and direct service organizations in the Coachella Valley.  Since the beginning of our grant-giving process, the Palm Springs Sisters have provided over One-Hundred-Thousand-Dollars to organizations throughout our area.

Emergency Grants are accepted and reviewed throughout the year and approved based on need and availability.  These emergency grants are usually limited to a maximum of Five-Hundred-Dollars but are considered on the individual merits of each request received. We do not provide grants to organizations that raise $500,000.00 or more per year through fundraising, grants, and other business models. Our focus is on small, grass-roots organizations that really need financial help.
