Youth Microgrant Program

Apply for a Microgrant

As part of our efforts to support youth volunteerism, we started a microgrant program in fall 2014. We are encouraging kids 18 and under to apply for funds between $250 and $1,000 to complete service projects in their communities. Whether it is turning a vacant lot into a community garden, rebuilding a school playground or helping senior citizens get their homes ready for winter, we want to hear what project you’re passionate about.

If you are interested in applying for a K4C microgrant, please fill out the application HERE.

All microgrant applications should be submitted to
or sent via mail to:

Living Classrooms Foundation
Attn: Karma for Cara Microgrant Application
1417 Thames Street
Baltimore, MD 21231

Application deadlines are now seasonal. Decisions will be made within one month of each deadline.

To date, we have awarded 40 grants worth $27,286.50. These grants engaged hundreds of volunteers in more than 1,000 hours of community service.
