Mac-Grove Mini Grants

Got a great idea for a community project?  

Apply for a Mac-Grove Mini Grant!

The 2020 grant cycle has been canceled.

Stay tuned this fall for updates on the 2021 grant cycle!

MGCC wants to hear your ideas! If you’ve ever thought about adding a bench to your bus stop, sprucing up a wall with a mural or even bringing in some new entertainment for your National Night Out block party – we want to help you make things happen.

We seek to award 1-4 grants this year that meet one or more of these goals:

  • increase community involvement in activities that benefit Mac-Grove
  • increase the number and diversity of people engaged in our neighborhoods
  • provide a one-time or on-going benefit to the Mac-Grove community.

Eligible projects could be anything from community-building activities (story-telling projects, workshops or classes, gatherings, conversations), or community design projects (gardens, murals, pedestrian safety, public art projects), to aiding already strong events and programs like National Night Out, Little Free Library, and more!

This list is by no means complete. If you’re not sure your idea fits, ask us: 651.695.4000 or
