In honor of a founding member of the Friends of Michigan Libraries, Friends of Michigan Libraries (FOML) awards up to two grants annually. 


Each “Harriet Larson Founders Grant” is worth up to $400 each. They are designed to help Friends groups in their efforts to support, enhance and showcase their local library. The grants will be awarded by the Grants Committee based on the following priorities when reviewing applications, provided an applicant meets all of the eligibility requirements:


1.   A new Friends group is being officially formed;

2.   A Friends group that is being rejuvenated, with a higher priority given to a group with a longer period of inactivity;

3.   An existing Friends group has a proposal for increasing membership, increasing community awareness, or a proposal for a novel approach to advocating for their library in the community.


“Harriet Larson Founders Grant” applications received by September 30th of each year will be considered at the following FOML Board meeting.


All applicants should be aware that the purchase or rental of equipment (such as audio-visual equipment or kitchen appliances) needed to implement the activities or events associated with this grant are not considered valid expenditures.


The grant form has been designed for you to complete within Adobe Reader on your computer and you can find it  <http://foml.org/site/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Harriet_Larson_Grant_web_application_form.pdf> here or on FOML's website at  <http://www.foml.org/> www.foml.org.
