MBK Mini Grant Program

Three $500 grants are available. Grant proposals must meet one of the following MBK goals: 

  • Entering school ready to learn
  • Reading at a grade level by third grade 
  • Preventing violence and providing second chances.

Applications must include a proposal summary, organization description and history, background, project description, project timeline and budget timeline.

The MBK Community Challenge is a national call to action to build and execute robust plans to ensure that all young people – no matter who they are, where they come from or the circumstances into which they are born – can achieve their full potential.
