This post originally appeared on December 5th 2012 in eJewish Philanthropy
Repair the World is offering micro-grants for winter and spring alternative break programs that focus on Hurricane Sandy relief and response efforts.
The micro-grants, ranging from $1,000 – $5,000, may be used by programs to help cover costs of the trip such as travel, supplies, staffing and local housing. Eligible groups should engage teens, college students and post-college-aged young adults (up to age 35) to serve at least 200 hours, to implement a disaster response service-learning curriculum developed by Repair the World, and to report on their experiences. All groups receiving a micro-grant must operate under or in connection to a 501(c)(3).
The grants are made possible through the support of The Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation.
