Funding Level: Up to $500 per Adult Action Group per rolling calendar year
Eligibility: Adult Action Groups (such as PTOs or Booster Clubs) that exist as 501(c)3s, educational, or governmental organizations or support Youth organizations that are qualified as such are appropriate applicants. While more than one grant may be submitted, only one grant will be awarded per Adult Action Group per rolling year.

Excluded Projects: Mini-grant applications will not be considered for political or religious activities, missions, or teachings; for equipment that is not an integral part of the project; for salaries or incentives for volunteers, for previously incurred debt.
Required Reporting: Unsused funds must be returned to the Foundation at the end of the rolling calendar year for which the grant was awarded.
