Mini Grants

This program is designed for smaller requests with quick turn-around. All five of the Bunnelle Foundation’s focus areas are included. Requests may be made for $250 to $5,000. Funding is available for "Special Opportunities,” such as the launch of a new program, training for staff or board or other one-time expense.

IRS tax status must be one of the following: certified 501(c)3 public charity, government entity or house of worship. Don't know if your organization is eligible? Start an application to find out; a questionnaire at the beginning of the form will help you determine eligibility.

The grant term for Mini Grants is 6 months. In other words, funding should be spent, and a final report submitted, within 6 months after the Foundation’s check is received. Organizations may receive no more than one Mini Grant per 12-month period.
