The mission of the Munroe-Meyer Guild is to improve the quality of life for persons with disabilities through fundraising for the UNMC Munroe-Meyer Institute.
Over the past 40-plus years, the major fundraiser for this supporting board has been the annual Munroe-Meyer Guild Garden Walk, held the second Sunday in June. Proceeds from that event and others total more than $1 million over the past four decades. Funds generated through the Garden Walk are used to help fund programs and support innovative projects and training at the institute that might otherwise go unfulfilled. A call for grant applications is announced at the end of the year.
The Munroe-Meyer Guild has announced its 2020 grants to the Munroe-Meyer Institute, supporting four innovative projects.
More than $66,000 in grant funding was awarded.
MMI Director Karoly Mirnics, M.D., Ph.D., said he was grateful to the Guild for its passion and its support of MMI's vision.
