Do members of your Torch Club or Keystone Club have a community service project they need help funding? The Karma for Cara Foundation has an opportunity available that could help your Club kids reach their goal!
As part of an effort to promote and support youth volunteerism, K4C started a micro-grant program in the fall of 2014 to encourage kids, ages 18 years and younger, to apply for grants that would support their volunteer efforts around their local community. Examples of appropriate projects include renovating a vacant lot into a community garden, rebuilding a school playground, or helping senior citizens prepare their homes for harsh weather.
To date, the foundation has awarded 40 grants totaling $27,286, and has engaged hundreds of volunteers in more than a thousand hours of community service.
For program guidelines, profiles of featured projects, and application instructions, see the Karma for Cara Foundation website. All decisions related to grant awards will be made within one month of the submission deadline.
