Middle Border Forward believes it doesn't take a title or a lot of money to make a positive impact where you live. The Community 500 Impact Project Sponsorship is our chance to prove it!
By providing technical assistance and financial support (up to $500), this initiative allows YOU to create change in YOUR community. And, since this is not a grant, applicants do not need to be affiliated with a group or organization.
Examples of past Community 500 projects include:
- Student-led greenhouse at a local elementary school
- Family portraits for residents of local public housing
- Poetry slam to spotlight creatives from across the region
In 2019, Community 500 applications will be accepted in three cycles:
- February 1-28
- May 1-31
- September 1-30
So, what's YOUR project idea? Tell us all about it & apply for support here.
