Lights On! - A Program of MicroGrants
MicroGrants reduces poverty with small grants that make a big difference in the lives of low-income people. By distributing grants to eliminate financial barriers to gainful employment, we help people out of poverty and into economic self-sufficiency. Many talented and motivated people just need a small boost to take that first step out of surviving into thriving.
We partner with 50 local partner organizations to distribute grants to people like students in trade programs, people seeking work, university students on the cusp of graduating, and other low-income individuals. Donations help individuals get their job, keep their job, pay for training, obtain reliable transportation, and purchase the tools they need.
“When you have money, a thousand dollars doesn’t seem like much. But when you have nothing, a thousand dollars feels like one million.”
