Need money to help support your 2012 MLK Day project?

The Michigan Community Service Commission, Michigan Nonprofit Association, Volunteer Centers of Michigan, The League Michigan, Michigan Campus Compact, and the Sara Ballard Volunteer Fund are awarding $15,500 in mini-grants to Michigan organizations who wish to host service projects as part of the 2012 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service.

All proposed events or activities must occur on or around MLK Day – Friday, January 6, 2012 through Monday, January 16, 2012. Preference will be given to events that occur on Monday, January 16.

Grants valued at up to $1,000 are available. Funds will cover direct service projects that focus on education, health, clean energy/environmental stewardship, economic opportunity, disaster preparedness, supporting veterans and military families, or public safety. Please note these funds are available solely to support volunteer and service projects – not community engagement events (i.e. prayer breakfasts or educational marches).

Michigan organizations; including national service grantees, Volunteer Centers, nonprofit organizations, K-12 and higher education institutions, etc. are encouraged to apply.
