In conjunction with Global Volunteer Month in April 2024, the United Way Engagement Team has developed a framework to provide ten $1,000 mini-grants that fund volunteer project supplies to nonprofit and community organizations throughout Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties.
This mini-grant program has few restrictions and requirements to remove some of the common barriers between organizations and funding. Overall, we hope that the Volunteer Project Mini-Grant Program helps the organization build brand recognition in the community and mobilize groups to volunteer, give and advocate in partnership with United Way for Southeastern Michigan.
