Deadline: Ongoing | Walmart LOCAL COMMUNITY GRANTS
Our local community grants, which are given to American local organizations directly from Walmart and Sam’s Club locations, are given out via an open application procedure. Uncertain about how to locate your nearby facility? You may relax; the application will help you.
Grants for local communities might be as little as $250 or as much as $5,000.
Nonprofits that meet the eligibility requirements must function locally (or as an affiliate or chapter of a larger organization that does so) and must directly benefit the facility’s service region.
