MMFO Grant Programs

How it Works

The Mini-Grant Program funds project requests up to $500.  Grant awards are made on a quarterly basis, and projects should support the mission of the Metropolitan Medical Foundation of Oregon.  

Limited funds require that the Foundation be selective in making grant awards.  The Mini-Grant Program is designed to support small projects, not to contribute small amounts for much larger budgets.  Total project budget should not exceed $3,000.  It is not intended to provide partial support for ongoing activities that will not change in any significant way from year to year. Mini-Grants will not usually be awarded to any organization in consecutive years.

Grant applicants searching for assistance for larger projects should submit in writing a complete description of the project with a timeline, a detailed budget and identification of lead staff for the project. As a small foundation with limited assets and with a commitment to our continued mission of giving, MMFO has a funding maximum of $2,000.  Funds are not available for personal access to medical care.
