Central Illinois Micro-Grants Program Grants

Through goodWORKSconnect and the support of The Lumpkin Family Foundation, the Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln is pleased to be able to support nonprofits with micro-grants in central Illinois. Micro-grants are awards for attendance by nonprofit staff and board members at trainings and professional development programs of their own choosing.

Micro-grants are strategic investments in people and organizations to be used to defray the cost of attending programs targeted at improving the management, governance and leadership of the applicant organization. Micro-grants can be used to send staff or board members to a specific workshop or conference or to engage a consultant to provide customized training to one or more organizations.
