We had such success with our first month of mini-grants in July that we have decided to continue offering them.
From here on out, the first Monday of every month will be a Mini-grant Monday!
Here are the rules:
What are Mini-grant Mondays?
How can my organization enter?
Follow Northwest Health Foundation on Facebook and/or Twitter. All you have to do to enter is either (1) tell us what your organization will use the money for by commenting on our monthly Mini-grant Monday Facebook post, or (2) tell us what your organization will use the money for by tweeting to @northwesthealth with the hashtag #minigrantmonday.
We will announce our winners at the end of the day on the first Monday of every month.
What can my organization do with the money?
Anything you want! You could pay for transportation to an event or advocacy day at the capitol. You could compensate community members for time spent participating in a focus group or advisory board. You could offer childcare at a community organizing meeting or event. You could buy flip charts, colored markers or other office supplies. Or...you tell us. The sky is the limit! (And nonprofit tax laws, of course.)
How will Northwest Health Foundation choose the winners?
We will select winners based on (1) how well your organization fits our guiding principles and commitment to equity and (2) your plan for spending the mini-grant.
Anything else I need to know?
You must be a registered nonprofit organization (501(c)3 or 501(c)4) working with communities in Oregon or Southwest Washington to enter. Mini-grants will be awarded in the form of Visa gift cards.
This contest is in no way sponsored, endorsed, administered by or associated with Facebook or Twitter.
