Welcome to San Manuel Cares

Here you will learn about what leads us to create change in our communities through charitable giving, how to apply for grants, and FAQs about who we are and how the grant process works.

The Spirit of Yawa’ – to act on one’s beliefs – inspires us to give back to the areas we call home and support organizations working to create a better tomorrow. We look to lend a hand through this charitable endeavor and other philanthropic tasks year-round, and cannot wait to work with you.


The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians have created a $1,000,000 Small Business Relief Fund to bring financial assistance to 50 small businesses… to help their business not only survive, but to thrive. See the full list of recipients.
