GRANT OPPORTUNITY: 2019 MLK Day of Service

For the fourth year in a row, The Arc will be offering $10,000 and $5,000 grants to nonprofit community organizations to develop service projects that commemorate Dr. King. During the projects, people with IDD will volunteer alongside people without disabilities to provide food assistance to people in need in their community.
The Arc will work with community organizations to:

  • Partner with a service club to recruit volunteers with and without disabilities from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds to participate in the project
  • Work with hunger-focused groups (e.g., community food banks, food pantries, soup kitchens) to deliver emergency food aid to people in need
  • Provide food aid on the MLK Day of Service and continue through the end of the grant (June 14, 2019)
  • Raise $31,000 ($10,00 grant) or $15,500 ($5,000 grant) in in-kind or cash matching funds to support the project

Apply to receive a grant for your volunteer program! Limited spots available.

Deadline: August 31, 2018
