Mini-Grant Opportunity: Supporting the Mental Health of Your Team

Jun - Thu - 2020
June 4, 2020
The past few months have been a new experience for us all, with many changes in both our home and work lives. You have all been so focused on adapting your programs and services to continue meeting community needs that you may not have had the time or resources to invest in yourself. But the health of the people who serve our community is critical to the health of our community.

Last week we wrapped up the final two “May is Mental Health Month” informational webinars (if you missed any of the presentations throughout the month you can find them by clicking here .) In the spirit of Mental Health Month and the unprecedented challenges of COVID-19, Moses Taylor Foundation is allocating grant funds to promote mental health awareness in the workplace.

How to Apply for a One-Time Grant for Your Team

To apply for a mini-grant, please complete this short application form.

  • Application deadline is Friday, June 19.
  • All nonprofit organizations are welcome to apply, regardless of whether they have a current grant with the Foundation. Participation will in no way impact eligibility for future Foundation funding.
  • Grants awarded will average $1,000, but larger teams may warrant larger grant awards.
  • Any nonprofit organization based in our 11-county footprint (Bradford, Carbon, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe, Pike, Schuylkill, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Wayne and Wyoming) is welcome to apply.
  • Only one idea per organization, please.

We intend to fund a variety of innovative projects that reflect a larger organizational commitment to supporting workplace mental health. We will share all the ideas we receive and announce mini-grants for the winning ideas at the beginning of July.

We're excited for this opportunity to support mental health awareness and well-being in our partner organizations, and look forward to receiving your ideas!
