Karma for Cara Foundation Invites Applications for Youth Service Project Grants

The Karma for Cara Foundation was established by 21-year-old Cara Becker and her family while Cara was being treated for leukemia. Created in Cara’s hospital room, what began as a couple of blood drives grew quickly, and the foundation now supports young citizen leaders nationwide.

To that end, the foundation is inviting applications for its micro-grant program. Through the program, grants of up to $1,000 will be awarded to students 18 years of age and under to complete a project that benefits their communities. Grants are intended to serve as a bridge between ideas and action, helping young citizen leaders execute and magnify their initiatives to help repair the world. Examples of fundable projects include transforming a vacant lot into a community garden, rebuilding a school playground, or helping senior citizens ready their home for winter.

The foundation requests that applicants applying on behalf of an entire class or student group designate a maximum of three student leaders to be the main points of contact for the project.

To be eligible, all students participating in the project must be 18 years of age or younger.

See the Karma for Cara website for compete program guidelines and application instructions.

Deadline: October 1, 2019
