Boost your event with $$$

Posted by Gustavo Torrez on 19 Dec 2017

We’re thrilled to once again offer $150, $250, and $500 mini-grants to support Kick Butts Day events around the country. Mini-grants are a way for us to boost events that demonstrate creativity, youth leadership, and careful planning to reach the media and decision-makers.


First, register your event. Once that’s done, you’ll be able to access the mini-grant application page. Please note that while we encourage you to register every event you’re hosting, you can only apply for a mini-grant for one of your events. Make sure you choose the event that would most benefit from financial support.

Your application is your chance to tell us more about the event and how mini-grant funds would improve it. We’re looking to fund events that are well thought-out – the more you tell us about it, the more likely we are to help you fund it! If you haven’t already, start planning your event now. We will only consider complete and fully submitted applications.


This year, mini-grant applicants need to become a certified Taking Down Tobacco trainer to be eligible to receive a mini-grant. If you aren’t already, this is a great chance for you to learn more about the Taking Down Tobacco training program and get everything you need to deliver the Taking Down Tobacco 101 training in your school or community.
