Neighbourhood Small Grants (NSG) is concluding a special milestone of 20 years contributing to communities, continuing to fulfill its vision as a grassroots grantmaking movement.
The impact of small grants reach far beyond any single event. Collectively, NSG contributes to the greater movement that is improving our communities. NSG brings people together, shifting division to connection and understanding among neighbours, and inspiring support network and community leaders.
For a summary of the Evaluation Report and key recommendations for NSG members moving forward, see the blog post, From Building Communities to Building Movements — the NSG 2018 Evaluation, by Geneva Lloyd.
