Last week we sent out micro-grant sheets to all of the students going off to site, and received over 40 back! This week we reviewed the applications and selected three sites to give micro-grants to. When reviewing the micro-grants, we look at the sustainability, efficiency, and how it will contribute to the site when making our decision. In past years we have given a brake-fast dog food bowl to an animal shelter, cultivating outdoor books to a classroom, and the Magic Tree House books to a classroom. From the freshman’s Holiday Market sales, they chose to donate some of their profits to the MAPS micro-grant fund, along with our Instagram Sale profits. Giving micro-grants is a good way to give back to our local community.
