A substantial portion of CIP's income derives from
client fees and other earned income. Fully 75% of CIP's
budget goes toward the delivery of direct services,
while administrative costs total only 15% and fund raising
10%. The agency conducts a diversified range of fund
raising activities and special events, mobilizing the
efforts of interns, staff, and community volunteers.
Donated funds come through grants, private donations,
Business Partnership contributions, and the generous
participation of the community at large. CIP receives
no funding from United Way or from federal or state
sources (except Medi-Cal reimbursement).
CIP undertakes a year-round grant request submission
program, and 100% of grant monies received are applied
directly to the costs of service delivery. Ongoing research
is conducted to find appropriate grant-making organizations
whose missions and funding priorities are consistent
with CIP's work in the community.
