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 I/DD 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
