Here’s a grant opportunity for local nonprofits that work in either hunger relief or community engagement.
The Walmart Foundation, the grant-giving arm of the major retail chain, recently started its third and final cycle for its State Giving Program this year, where nonprofits operating at a regional or state level in any state can apply for grant money ranging from $25,000 to $200,000.
The Walmart Foundation mostly focuses on helping out hunger relief efforts and organizations — past recipients of grant money from the organization have included Broad Street Ministry and the Pennsylvania Association of Regional Food Banks — but for this last cycle of giving with this grant, nonprofits working in community engagement that “focus on the unmet needs of underserved low-income populations” are welcome to apply, according to a press release.
That’s a pretty broad definition, but here are some of the examples for community engagement:
- Career opportunity
- Disaster preparedness
- Education programs
- Healthcare access
- Human service programs
Applications are available here and they’re due by the end of the day tomorrow.-30-
