How to apply
To apply for a grant, you must fill out an online application. The online system will triage the requests and send them to the appropriate geographic team for consideration. It will take approximately 8 weeks from the close of the application cycle for us to get back to you on the status of the grant.
Who we work with
We work with existing and new partners that we proactively seek out and identify as collaborators to achieve our mission and goals. Grants made in a limited geography will be considered by the local Public Affairs Staff (view contacts in your area). Amounts vary vastly by region, so please view Grant Guidelines to learn more about your area. If you wish to learn more about another area, please select the store in that area by using the change location link at top of this website.
TIP: To Strengthen Your Application – Include an Employee Sponsor
On the online application, you will be asked if you have a sponsor and then offered the opportunity to provide their name. We will contact that employee to learn more about your work before the application is considered. Typically, an employee sponsor is a volunteer, board member or someone who has been helped by your organization. If you cannot identify an employee in your ranks, we recommend you speak to your local Store Manager to see if they would be willing to sponsor.
Please note: All applications in California, Hawaii and Reno-area Nevada require an employee sponsor.
