What can an organization do with $100?

In July, we asked Oregon and SW Washington nonprofits, "What could your organization do with $100?" We received answers from 50 nonprofits, suggesting everything from buying new gardening tools for a school garden, to providing healthy snacks for program participants, to creating an educational video about their services, and lots in between. This is a testament to the amazing and varied work that is happening in our region!

To see the full list of requests, check out the comments on our Facebook page or search #minigrantmonday on Twitter.

Sadly, we could only select four Mini-Grant Monday winners in the end. And, here they are...
