Our Involvement in the Community

SMCF board members enjoy attending and participating in Sierra Madre events and festivals.

 Mt. Wilson Trail Race

The Sierra Madre Community Foundation was onhand to watch this year's Mt. Wilson Trail Race.  It started bright and early at 7:00 AM to avoid the heat.  Kersting Court was full of people cheering the 187 participants in their challenging 8.6 mile run, shopping the local businesses, having a refreshment at the beer garden and listening to music.   The Foundation is proud to support this great event!

Sierra Madre  Community Foundation sponsors its first 4th of July Firecracker Fun Run!

With 170 participants, this year's Firecracker Fun Run was quite a success!  The cloudy weather was perfect for the 3.2km run/walk, which was attended by adults, kids, babies and dogs.  The Foundation raised more than $1,700 through enrollment fees and sponsorships.  And we have exciting changes anticipated for next year!

 July 3rd Block Party

The Sierra Madre Community Foundation participated in the city’s July 3rd Block Party.  Look for us to attend other events including Oct. 16 when we’ll be out supporting the Mt. Wilson Trail Race.

Whiskey & Wine Event Raises More Than $8,700

What a night!  The Sierra Madre Community Foundation's  Whiskey & Wine tasting event at the historic Mia Italia residence raised the most money from a single event in the organization's 20-year history.  The event’s $8,700 in net proceeds will be reinvested into the community via grants for local activities, events and programs.  More than 150 residents and supporters attended the Feb. 22 event.  Apply for a grant at
