MONAT GRATITUDE GRANT PROGRAM APPLICATION PORTAL OPENS FOR U.S. NONPROFITS
Eligible nonprofits can now apply for funding from MONAT Gratitude’s $1 million pledge to support various programs
MONAT Gratitude, a South Florida-based nonprofit, announced that eligible nonprofits can now apply for grants to support new and existing initiatives in arts and culture, youth sports and recreation, and youth entrepreneurship around the world. The organization announced last month that it will donate $1 million over the next year to invest in important educational resources that help narrow the achievement gap in underserved communities.
“We believe that every child should have the opportunity to explore their talents and achieve their full potential,” said Lu Urdaneta, Founder and CEO of MONAT Gratitude. “We are proud to expand our efforts through this program and hope these grants will open the door to brighter futures for thousands of talented young people around the world. We can’t wait to see what they achieve!”
The MONAT Gratitude grants, with funds raised from a combination of individual Market Partner donations and MONAT Global support, will provide funding for new and existing K-12 programs that provide arts, music, sports or entrepreneurship opportunities to help students grow into knowledgeable, well-rounded adults. This program was inspired by the organization's mission to provide a better quality of life for children and families while advancing opportunities that foster academic achievement across the globe.
Last month, the organization awarded the first three $10,000 grants during MONAT Global’s annual MONATions Convention in Atlanta, presenting grants to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta, the Atlanta Music Project, and Soccer in the Streets Atlanta.
To be eligible for grant support, U.S.-based nonprofit organizations must currently be recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) public charity or equivalent. The grant program is also open to international nonprofits in select countries in which MONAT Global operates. Eligible organizations can learn more and apply for a grant by visiting the MONAT Gratitude grant page at monatgratitude.com.
