Madison Community Cooperative (MCC) is offering grants to community organizations active in grassroots work.
A total of $1500 is available, which will be divided among organizations selected by MCC based on applications. This may take the form of one larger grant or multiple smaller ones. In previous years, grants have generally ranged from $200-500 per organization.
Madison Community Cooperative is a member-controlled non-profit cooperative organization made up of 11 houses in the city of Madison. The cooperative was formed in 1968 to support long-term growth and stability for community living. We, as a membership, run the Co-op democratically through a Board of Directors, committees for membership, finance, maintenance and individual issues and three general membership meetings per year. We share resources, skills and camaraderie to create a cooperative and sustainable community.
MCC's mission is to "improve the Madison community by providing low cost, not-for-profit cooperative housing for very low- to moderate-income people and to be inclusive of underrepresented and marginalized groups of the community."
The members of MCC have the option to contribute to a Community Services Trust Fund that is donated to other community organizations at the end of the fiscal year. This year we will be granting multiple awards to organizations that align best with our mission, are working on the grassroots level, and are in high need. At least one grant will be given to an organization working on housing issues and at least one will be given to a non-housing organization.
Apply for the Community Services Trust Fund grant.
Submission deadline: October 1st, 2014
Applicants will be notified of awards by the end of October.
