Microsanctuary Resource Center Micro-Grant Application Form
Thank you for your interest in the Microsanctuary Resource Center micro-grant program!

These micro-grants are meant to help microsanctuaries with funding small projects, be it for startup or expansion and improvement, as well as for reproductive healthcare. We have three separate funding programs: Reproductive Healthcare, Microsanctuaries of Color, and Startup.

Grants do not need to be paid back or returned if used for approved purposes.

Please read about our micro-grant program on our website before filling out this application to determine if you are eligible to receive a grant. Note that we screen applicants and will keep in touch after you receive your grant in order to help you be successful.

Grants will not be given to projects or individuals using animals in any way. Veganism is central to all microsanctuaries.

If you have any questions along the way, feel free to get in touch with us at info@microsanctuarymovement.org!

Reporting Requirements

If you receive a grant, you will be asked for the following:

ASAP: Grant Agreement form, which is your contract by which you agree to use funds as described in your application and keep in touch about progress, problems, and questions along the way.

Within 12 months of acceptance: A Final Report describing how you used your funds, completion of the project, and impact it has had. Please provide copies of receipts for expenses covered by the grant as well.
