One of the ways MSON (501 (c) (7)) strives to support our local community each year is by donating thousands of dollars to local non-profits. Yearly, MSoN gives $5,000 - $10,000 in community grants to non-profit organizations directly benefiting military families, with the average grant being $500 - $1000. Organizations should apply for funding for their most critical needs. MSoN support can be requested for continuing your existing projects, undertaking an expansion in your organization or creating all new programs.
Community grants will be disbursed in the spring. Applications must be postmarked by April 15 to be considered. Organizations may apply more than once and will be considered regardless of acceptance or denial of funding from past applications.
