Mini Grant Overview

In 2009, Sustainable Bolivia implemented a mini grant program to accomplish several goals, including:
  • To aid our partner organizations through direct investment
  • To provide increased transparency to our volunteers/interns, funders, and greater community
  • To make the volunteer/intern experience more valuable and impactful, involving them in the process and implementation of the project

Sustainable Bolivia is committed to investment in projects that will create long term impact. The mini grant system is a key component to supporting this objective. SB has a monthly fund that volunteers can apply for, where we’ve allocated up to $500 in funding for the best projects submitted each month. Each volunteer has the opportunity to apply for a grant between $1 and $500 for their organization. Applications will be made between 1st and 25th of each month. All project applications will be evaluated by the SB staff team at the end of each month and recipients will be notified and money made available within 7-10 days.
