The Truliant Foundation is encouraging nonprofit organizations in cities and counties where its branch network operates to submit applications starting this week for Community Mini Grant funding.

The program, now in its 14th year, provides community-based nonprofit organizations with up to $1,500 in grant funding to support programming needs. This year, completed applications should be submitted by Sunday, May 1.

Since its inception, the program has awarded more than $350,000 in funding. It gave $45,000 in grants in 2021.

“The Truliant Foundation’s Community Mini Grants make an impact to help local nonprofits with essential programs. We encourage qualifying organizations in our member communities to apply,” said Atticus Simpson, director of the Truliant Foundation.

The grants program provides support for qualifying nonprofit organizations. Applications are available online at www.truliant.org/minigrants. Finalists will be notified in June.

This year, Truliant is committed to supporting nonprofit organizations that improve member communities in one of four unique areas including: Community development, economic mobility, financial wellness, and youth and education.

Winners will be chosen by an internal panel. Qualifying organizations that are interested in applying must have tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and be in existence for at least three years. Truliant Foundation grants are unavailable to individuals, political candidates or groups, religious organizations, churches and organizations that operate outside the identified geographic areas.
