Apply for a Grant

We prefer that organizations apply using our online grant application. To avoid surprises, please download a PDF copy of the application in advance to use as a reference as you prepare all the materials you need once you begin completing the online form. Prepare the following files as you will be asked to upload a Project Description, Photos of the Site, Sketch of the Proposed Garden, and a Proposed Budget (save in Excel or Google Sheets) and Impact Statement.

Please read through the information on the page below, as it contains answers to most people’s questions. If you still have questions, you many email Joni Miller at unitygardensaa@gmail.com.
