Walmart encourages not-for-profits to apply for State Giving grants

The Walmart Foundation is encouraging applications from Indiana not-for-profit organizations for its State Giving grants, which begin at $25,000. The foundation awards grants twice a year to underserved populations who need help in every state.

Prospective grantee organizations must submit applications through the Walmart Foundation State Giving Program’s online grant application, available at www.walmartfoundation.org/stategiving. The deadline is March 1.

The proposed use of the grant must fit within one of the Walmart Foundation’s core giving areas: hunger relief & nutrition, sustainability, women’s economic empowerment or career opportunity.

“While education and health and wellness are no longer core areas of our national giving, we recognize that they are extremely important issues in the communities we serve. We continue to support education and health and wellness through our state and local giving programs,” said David Reitnauer, vice president and regional manager.

Launched in 2008, associate-led state advisory councils work with the Walmart Foundation to identify needs within their state, review grant requests and make funding recommendations.

Eligible applicants must have a current 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status to meet the program’s minimum funding criteria. Grant submissions are accepted only online at www.walmartfoundation.org/stategiving.
