The Karma for Cara Foundation Supports Youth Voluntarism and Youth-Led Service Projects.
The Karma for Cara Foundation (K4C) supports youth voluntarism and youth-led service projects. The Foundation offers micro-grants to help children under 18-years-old complete a service project in their community. Examples of fundable projects include but are not limited to turning a vacant lot into a community garden, rebuilding a school playground, or helping senior citizens get their homes ready for winter. K4C provides teens inspiration and financial support to take their ideas and burgeoning projects to the next, increasingly impactful level. Applications submitted on behalf of an entire class or student group must designate a maximum of three student leaders to be the main points of contact for the project. Additionally, applicants should indicate how many students will be involved in executing the project, as well as how many people will benefit from the project. Projects should involve more than just purchasing items and donating them to others.
