Pay It Forward Foundation — Mini-Grant Project

Application Deadlines: Applications for mini-grants are reviewed three times each year. Deadlines are October 15, January 15, and April 15. Applications received after a deadline will be reviewed in the subsequent grant cycle. Applicants will be notified about the status of their mini-grants within 60 days of each deadline.

Description: The Pay It Forward Foundation administers a mini-grant program for "pay it forward" activities involving youth of all ages. A Pay It Forward project is defined as one or more service activities that benefit youths’ school, neighborhood, or greater community, and include learning goals for the youth participants. Applicants are encouraged to plan the project with input from the clients or organization that will benefit in order to ensure that the project is needed and timely.

Who May Apply: Teachers, principals, other school personnel, youth leaders, and student or community youth groups (with an adult sponsor) may apply. Individual youths may also apply; youths or adults may write the application. All youths under 21 are invited to participate; groups whose members are all over 18 years of age must include work with youths who are under 18 as part of their project.

Funding Amount: Mini-grants between $50 and $500 are available to school, church, and community-based groups of youths for service activities of all types.
