Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'" Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities. The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President's national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems. The MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King's vision of a beloved community.
Who May Apply:
Any public or private nonprofit organization, serving the state of Kansas, including faith-based and other community organizations, public or private schools, institutions of higher education and government entities. Projects must take place in the state of Kansas.
The KVC will make available mini-grant funds to support 2015 MLK Day of Service Projects. The Commission expects to award grants of approximately $750. Requests should not exceed $750. Applicants understand that this is a cost-reimbursement grant funding opportunity.
Applications are due COB January 2, 2015.
Awards will be announced on or before January 9, 2015.
