Travel grants help MRG grantees make national and regional connections and develop the leadership and skills needed for effective organizational development and organizing.
The maximum single grant award is $1,000. Pending availability of funds, each group can apply for more than one travel grant per fiscal year (July 1 - June 30) - but the total amount received in any fiscal year cannot exceed $1,000.
You can see a list of groups that have received Travel Grants here.
For full funding criteria contact MRG’s Grants Program Assistant Cris Lira.
Travel grants may be applied for at any time, as long as money is available in the fund. However, the application must be received at the MRG office at least three weeks before the travel date. The Grantmaking Committee’s decision-making process takes two weeks following the receipt of your completed application form. Please plan accordingly.
For fund status and an application, please contact the Grants Program Assistant, Cris Lira at 503-234-2338 or 1-800-489-6743 (outside Portland) or email Cris.
