Mini-Grants

Up to $5,000

MINI GRANT TIMELINE

  • December 1, 2019: The  grant application will be available on our eGrant system 
  • February 3, 2020: Mini-grant applications due by 5:00 p.m. (online only, no printed forms required.)
  • February, April and October 2020: A color brochure with a brief but compelling description of all mini-grant requests will be mailed to the Community Foundation's donor advised fund holders for their consideration. Since there is no guarantee that mini grant requests will be funded, or within a certain time-frame, mini-grants are best suited to programs that are not time-sensitive. Telling the donors exactly what they will be funding really appeals to them.

MINI GRANT CRITERIA

  • Projects and programs must serve residents of Clinton, Eaton or Ingham counties, Michigan.
  • Organization's operating budget cannot exceed $350,000.
  • Mini-Grants can be requested for ongoing programming and/or capacity building.
  • Best suited to programs or projects with flexible time frames. There is no guarantee that mini grant requests will be fully or partially funded, or by a certain date. 

MINI GRANT FORMS

Mini-grants do not require an evaluation or final report.
