This article will bring you to the list of the foundations that give grants to nonprofit organizations. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it. Even though in today’s world the differences between the rich and the poor are very much pronounced, there is still some good in the world. Due to the global ease when it comes to obtaining information, sometimes we are persuaded to believe there is too much evil in the world and that people don’t care about one another.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the foundations that give grants to nonprofit organizations from their list.
The first one is PepsiCo Foundation. There is no need to present this brand. It is wondrous how much a bottle or a can of Pepsi is available anywhere in the world. Apart from globally affecting people’s thirst satisfaction, PepsiCo has a keen interest in healthy lifestyles, affordable nutrition, access to clean water, sustainable agriculture, job readiness, and empowering women and girls. Even though PepsiCo corporate foundation has given around $900 million in cash and resources since 2005, it must be noted that this sponsor normally approves grants to big organizations. Nevertheless, you can still give it a go. No matter how big or small an organization is, you always write and make proposals to the same address. The second company on our short list now is Walmart Foundation. Anyone living in the States has purchased something in their supermarket, but did you know they are on the list of the 20 most generous companies? Walmart donates $301 million in 2015. Around $100 million went to improve the economic mobility of workers, and almost $11 million went to nonprofit workforce organizations. Sounds interesting? At last, but not least let’s see Ford Foundation that emphasizes they primarily strive to invest in individual leadership, strong institutions, and innovative ideas because they believe these are the foundations of everything they do. Inspiring as it may be, we are going to be more down to earth and mention their involvement in funding rural nonprofits. Regarding funds and grants, countryside nonprofits usually face more challenges than the ones in urban areas. Being geographically limited to financial sources is tough, and not being situated in a densely populated area is also the fact that repels potential investors.
