Daily Grant (DG) Program
The Pollination Project seeks to unleash goodness and expand compassion all over the world. To that end, through our pioneering Daily Grant program, we make $1000 micro grants 365 days a year. These grants are designed to kick start an organization or individual’s work and give them the push they need to thrive and grow. Our daily grant making began on January 1, 2013 and since then, we have funded a different project every single day. All qualified applicants in any funding area are considered within the guidelines of this program.
