Microgrants help non-profit Macon County Legacy members obtain strategies and skills to enhance professional and organizational productivity.

Microgrants may be used for conferences and training, as well as travel costs associated with attending the conference.

Application Process

The application portal opens February 1 and closes February 28, 2021, for grant amounts up to $1,500.

To apply, please read the guidelines below, and complete the application. Once your application is complete, please send it and your attachments via email to Missy Batman.


Microgrants are up to $1,500 for attendance by nonprofit staff and board members at trainings and professional development programs of their own choosing. Microgrants 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.

The maximum grant amount is $1,500 and the organization pays no less than 20% of the total cost.

  • Micro-grants will only support FUTURE opportunities, not trainings or professional development that has already occurred.
  • Organizations can only apply for one micro grant per cycle.
  • Organization must be a member of Macon County Legacy Group.

Note: Preference will be given to organizations with an annual budget of less than 1 million dollars.

Dollars are tight in most organizations...please don't miss out on this great opportunity!
