Apply for a Mini Grant!

Apply for a Mini Grant!

Only 1 month left to apply for a $250 or $500 mini grant!

Last Kick Butts Day, we gave out mini grants to select events across the country for the first time ever. We were able to help 60+ events reach their maximum potential and get the Kick Butts Day message out!

For the second year, we are offering mini grants of $250 or $500. Learn more about how to apply here.

Mini-grants can supercharge your event and provide the boost it needs to be successful and effective.

Last year’s recipients held GREAT events with the extra help of mini grants!

“I applied for a mini grant last year after youth across the state expressed a lot of interest for a youth rally and meeting with their senators. The cost was a concern when it came to getting youth to the event. After going through our budget and cutting as many expenses as possible, there were concerns about the cost of transportation. This mini grant allowed us to provide free transportation to any participant that needed it.”

“Receiving the grant was exciting for both our youth organizers and youth participants. They were re-energized after hearing about it. It was cool to hear that a national organization believed in their event and thought that it was important enough to provide grant funds to help support it.”

“I applied for a mini grant because my students wanted to do something for [Kick Butts Day]that involved writing to their legislators, a graffiti wall and many other items for the event. I wanted to make it possible for them, but had a limited budget. We definitely would have not been able to talk with legislators at the state capitol or write to them without the provision of this grant. I participated in [Kick Butts Day] events from 2002 to 2005 when I was in high school. It was a great experience for me and wanted to share it with them! Thank you!!”
