"After wonderful donor support during our first week of our launch, we are pleased to send out our first round of micro-grants to support projects led by youth around the country."

Start A Snowball is a new & novel non-profit that launched on February 10, 2014. Start A Snowball was founded to encourage children to engage in their own community service and philanthropy projects, and providing them funding through micro-grants.

Start A Snowball Co-Founder, Mac Winslow, said "After wonderful donor support during the first week after our launch, we are pleased to send out our first round of micro-grants to support projects led by youth around the country."

These grants will fund three (3) projects:

  • A first grader in Florida who is helping children grieving with the loss of a loved one
  • A high schooler in Arizona has started an ongoing anti-bullying project
  • A Missouri-based teen and fellow students are creating emergency kits for senior citizens.

"These initial grants will make a great impact to the individuals and organizations receiving them, as well as on their chosen causes. They will also give Start A Snowball national visibility as we strive to build a culture of service among our youth," said Winslow.

  •          Support: Through offering resources and community we can empower youth to make huge impacts.
  •          Growth: As we teach children about serving others we can create a movement that can influence a generation of givers.
