As part of an effort to promote and support youth voluntarism, the Karma for Cara Foundation started a microgrant program in the fall of 2014 to encourage kids 18 and under to apply for funds between $250 and $1,000 to complete service projects in their communities. Examples of fundable projects include but are not limited to turning a vacant lot into a community garden, rebuilding a school playground, or helping senior citizens get their homes ready for winter.
Application deadlines are seasonal (July 1, October 1, January 1, and April 1), and decisions will be made within a month of each deadline.
For complete program guidelines, profiles of featured projects, and application instructions, see the Karma for Cara Foundation website.
