McLain Association for Children – Small Grant Program to Empower Persons with Disabilities and their Families


Recognizing that the most meaningful efforts often come from within the community, McLain Association for Children, Inc. has established a small grant program to identify those that are already out there doing good work and assist them to accomplish even more.  MAC Inc. offers small grants averaging approximately $7,500 each to nonprofit organizations operating within our three geographic target areas of the Caucasus, Tanzania, and the British Virgin Islands.

MAC share the following beliefs:

  • Persons with disabilities can reach their full potential only with access to appropriate services and qualified professionals;
  • Investing in the education of a few will impact the lives of many;
  • Lasting, meaningful change in a country is most likely to occur when individuals from that country are provided the tools and then allowed to translate those tools into the context of their country.

Eligibility :

Applicants should be a nonprofit organization, should operate within one of our geographic target areas, and should compellingly address one (or both) of our funding priorities:

  • Improve access to high quality education
  • Empower persons with disabilities and their families

Grants may not be used to fund the following activities:

  • Carrying out of propaganda;
  • Influencing any legislation or the outcome of any public election;
  • Implementing, directly or indirectly, any sort of voter registration drive.
