2013 9/11 Day of Service Mini-Grants
The Michigan Community Service Commission, Michigan Nonprofit Association, Volunteer Centers of Michigan, The League Michigan, Michigan Campus Compact, with support from the Connect Michigan Alliance Endowment Fund and the Corporation for National and Community Service, are awarding mini-grants to Michigan organizations who wish to host volunteer projects as part of the 2013 National Days of Service.
The application process for 2013 9/11 Day of Service Mini-Grants is currently open. All applications must be received by June 28, 2013. To access the application form and complete guidelines, click here.
Grants valued at up to $500 are available and will be distributed based on the following scale:
$500- Engage 100 or more volunteers in project
$350- Engage at least 50 volunteers in project
$200- Engage at least 25 volunteers in project
All proposed service projects must occur on or around September 11, 2013 (Sunday, September 1, 2013 through Sunday, September 15, 2013). Preference will be given to projects that occur on September 11, 2013.
These grants are intended to encourage volunteer projects that engage veterans or military families as volunteers or as the recipients of service. While preference will be given to these projects, funds may also be granted to cover direct service projects that focus on education, health, clean energy/environmental stewardship, economic opportunity, disaster preparedness, and public safety. Please note these funds are available solely to engage people in volunteer projects - not community engagement events (i.e. prayer breakfasts or educational marches).
