Community Grants and Scholarships

The RPTC continues to turn generous financial support from local businesses and residents into more and more community grants and scholarships! Schools, organizations, and individuals from Westview High School, Mesa Verde and Black Mountain Middle School, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Rancho Peñasquitos Little League, and many more have received thousands of dollars to further worthwhile endeavors.

Check out our Get Funded! page on our website to learn more and see examples. Let the all-volunteer, civic-focused, nonprofit community organization known as the Rancho Peñasquitos Town Council help your organization, group, or school as well!
