Walmart grant deadline approaches

The Walmart Foundation is accepting grant applications to its State Giving Program.

Indiana nonprofits may apply for grants between $25,000 and $200,000 to support programs that focus on hunger relief, healthy eating, career opportunity and disaster preparedness. Deadline to submit grants is 11:59 p.m. April 15.

The foundation awards grants to Hoosier organizations that address areas of need among underserved populations. Indiana-based charities, including the Urban Leagues of Indianapolis and Fort Wayne, and Feeding America food banks in Indianapolis and Terre Haute, received more than $800,000 in grants in 2015.

Launched in 2008, Walmart employee-led State Advisory Councils work with the foundation to identify needs within their state, review grant requests and make funding recommendations.

Once this application window closes, Hoosier nonprofits have one additional opportunity to apply. The final grant application window in Indiana is Aug. 29 through Sept. 2.
