MPWR Current Project Funding Opportunity List
Our Board works with the city, the community, and grant opportunities to establish our list of potential projects to fund.
The MPWR Board will work with the city of Monrovia and the community to develop the list of projects we hope to fund. Note that this list is subject to change and is not in priority order to provide maximum flexibility in using funds in the most efficient way, for the most critical needs. As projects are funded, we will post updates to this page so you can see your donations in action!
