Go For It! Microgrant Application 2020
Are you looking to experience new things? Curious about the arts, looking to take up a new hobby, or interested in expanding your knowledge? If you have a passion, we will supply the cash!

Footsteps' Go For It! microgrant offers monetary support to Footsteps members (and groups of members) seeking to do something to enrich their personal growth. Microgrants of $100 - $500 will be awarded to Footsteps members looking to explore new experiences and talents.

The deadline to apply is Monday, March 16, 2020. Go For It! microgrants are awarded by committee with full discretion.

Criteria and Guidelines:

1) Go For It! microgrants are designed to offer Footsteps members access to unique opportunities for personal development (e.g. piano lessons, rock climbing instruction, driving lessons, sewing lessons, yoga classes).

2) Go For It! microgrants can be used to purchase supplies, pay for the cost of an experience, or to obtain indirect help to make the experience possible (e.g. to pay a babysitter or for transportation).

3) The grant cannot be used to cover academic fees, nor is it meant to pay for an individual’s work time. For example, this grant will cover the cost of paint brushes, paint, and canvas, but it cannot pay for the time one spends in their apartment painting.

4) This grant is for Footsteps members or groups of members only. If you want to apply for a microgrant but are not yet a member, please reach out to Julia Jerusalmi-Henig, Member Engagement Manager at julia@footstepsorg.org to learn more about how to become a Footsteps member.

Please note: This microgrant is not intended for housing, school, or vocational training expenses. If you are interested in securing funding for educational opportunities and/or careers, please contact Arielle Schwartz, Program Associate, at arielle@footstepsorg.org. For all other questions, reach out to Rae Lipkind, Community Engagement Coordinator at rae@footstepsorg.org.
