MicroGrants spurs economic self-sufficiency by giving strategic and timely grants to low-income 'People of Potential'. Many talented and motivated people just need a small boost to help them on their career paths. For low-income people, MicroGrants is that stimulus for moving closer to self-sufficiency.
MicroGrants has $50,000 in MATCHING dollars pledged to DOUBLE all donations made for Give to the Max Day! You give $10,000, they’ll give $10,000, you give $1,000 or $500 or $100, they’ll do the same - until we’ve matched $50,000!
Your donation helps individuals get the job, pay for training classes, repair their car, purchase tools for a new job or business. Grants are generally funded within a week of receiving the application. These timely grants often assist people in keeping their jobs by resolving transportation issues or affording certification exams or tools, etc. for moving up in their current position.
