Request a Grant Writer

In-kind grants valued at $500 to USA youth between the ages of 9 and 16 for materials to start local vegetable gardens. Funding is intended to help young people start and maintain vegetable gardens of all sizes and donate the harvest to help feed people in need. Applications for all types of vegetable gardens, such as a container garden in a city, or a vegetable garden located in a neighborhood or at a school, will be considered.

The winners will be awarded a gift card to a garden center in their area (up to $500), support from Katie’s Krops, and a digital camera to document the garden and the harvest. In addition to grant materials, winners will be eligible to attend the all-expenses-paid Katie's Krops Summer Camp in Pelion, South Carolina, thanks to the generous support of WP Rawl.

Katie's Krops also awards a yearly scholarship for higher education to the grantee of the year. All grantees that complete all grant requirements are eligible for funds to continue to grow, year after year, thereby creating a sustainable solution to hunger in their community.

Grantee(s) must donate the entire harvest from the garden to people in need in their community. This may be done through direct donations to families in need or by donating the harvest to soup kitchens or organizations that feed the needy.

Estimated Size of Grant:

A $500 gift card to a local garden center, support from Katie’s Krops, and a digital camera to document the garden and the harvest.

Term of Contract:

Katie's Krops grant winners are required to start and maintain a vegetable garden for a minimum of one planting season.

The winners will be notified by February 1, 2016, and the garden must be started in the Spring of 2016.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

A child, or a group of children, can apply as long as they fall within the age range of 9 to 16 and live in the United States.

Applications for all types of vegetable gardens, such as a container garden if you live in a city or a vegetable garden located in your neighborhood or at your school, will be considered. The grantee decides where the garden will be grown. The grant winners also determine where they will donate their harvest, which is based on the need in their community. As an example, the harvest can be used to support classmates in need, homeless shelters, food banks, or for neighbors in need.

Pre-Application Information:

Applications must be postmarked by December 31, 2015. All applications must be filled out completely and signed by a parent or legal guardian. Only applications that are mailed will be accepted.
