District Microgrants

District Microgrants

Our own Nest and family of birds started as a long shot idea. A few believers helped our birds take flight, turning US into believers! Our microgrant program supports doers, makers and disruptors in the District with $2,500 no-strings grants.

The spirit of the program is simple. We have a one-page application process and we’ll review applicants with projects or programs that impact DC proper. We ask that projects can begin and end in a three month window. It is not required that applicants be part of or affiliated with a not for profit and businesses; artists, agitators, educators and more are encouraged to apply.


Wonder where some of these microgrant investments have landed? We’ve sponsored murals, purchased diverse library books for under resourced public schools, chipped in for a tractor needed by a veteran farmer and we sponsored a small organization that hosts birthday parties for homeless kids. We helped an entrepreneur get supplies to package his DC specific hot sauce recipe, underwrote a bicycle repair station in Southeast DC where none existed and we partnered with an organization to provide carbon monoxide/smoke detectors to the elderly East of the River. And we KNOW there is more we can invest in. Is it you or your idea?
