Days of Service Mini Grant Program

Across the Commonwealth, nonprofit organizations, faith-based groups, and others plan National Day of Service projects in their communities, honoring Martin Luther King Jr. Day in January and 9/11 Remembrance Day in September. Serve Virginia and the Virginia Service Foundation support these efforts through mini grant funding opportunities as well as promotional assistance to engage community members in volunteerism.
 
Organizations can apply for up to $250 of mini grant funding from the Virginia Service Foundation to support National Days of Service projects that engage individual and group volunteers in opportunities to serve others and reflect on civic engagement. Applications open for mini grant funding each Summer for the 9/11 Day of Service and each Fall for the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service.
 
The current funding cycle is for 9/11 Day of Service projects and will be open from July 8 – August 2, 2024.
