Join MONAT Gratitude’s effort to invest in important educational resources that support the arts, music, entrepreneurship, and athletics in our communities around the world. Together, we’re changing lives! We believe in strengthening and investing in the nonprofits that are already part of our Market Partners’ lives and communities.
MONAT Gratitude is committed to ensuring children, families, and communities—regardless of race, nationality, or income—have the opportunity to thrive.

Support music and arts education programs for children in grades K–12.
Support youth sports programs in grades K–12 that inspire engagement and positively impact children in underserved communities.

Grant recipients will be notified by email after each application period closes and will also be announced via email and @MONATGratitudeOfficial social accounts. Only one grant will be awarded to a nonprofit organization per calendar year.
Eligible charitable organizations will apply and register through the online MONAT Gratitude Portal. Everything from application submission to final grant reporting will take place within the portal.
Submit the application. Applicants will provide detailed information about the program for which they are requesting support, including an essay about the program, formal documentation clearly reflecting the organization’s charitable status, detailed budgets, and impact reports.
After submission, applicants will receive an autoresponder email confirming their application has been received. Once MONAT Gratitude receives all applications for a single grant period, Council Members will rigorously vet each application before making a recommendation to the Board of Directors. All applicants will be notified by email if they were approved or not approximately 6–8 weeks after each application period closes.
All organizations that receive funding will be required to share the great work achieved at the end of the grant period through photos, videos, and/or written testimonials and impact report. The final report will be submitted via the online portal. No further funding is available until the applicable final report is completed.
