Community Grants

The 2023 grant application period has come to a close.

Winners will be announced soon!

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.

Important Points to Note: 

  • The funds MUST be used to directly benefit military families. 
  • Funds need to meet an organization’s most critical needs. This can include continuing existing support, expanding a program or starting a new program.
  • Funds will not typically be granted for fund-raising campaigns or re-granting of funds in an organization’s own name. 
  • Requests must be for an organization and not a person(s). 

All applications must also:  

  • Be clear and concise
  • Detail the amount of military involvement
  • Provide supportive financial documentation
