Grants Promote Community Improvement Efforts Nationwide: A Community Thrives
A Community Thrives, a grantmaking and crowdfunding program of USA TODAY NETWORK with funding from the Gannett Foundation, invests in community-building initiatives across the country. The program is a way to share community improvement ideas on the national stage, gain support through donations and local connections, and get a chance at receiving a portion of an additional $2,000,000 in grants to help projects succeed. During the campaign, nonprofit organizations have the chance to raise funds for their charities on their official A Community Thrives challenge page.
At the end of the crowdfunding period, the Gannett Foundation will award grants ranging from $2,500 to $100,000 to selected organizations. Nonprofit organizations and municipal programs such as libraries and schools are encouraged to apply between June 1 and June 30, 2021. Interested applicants may register for an information session, which will be held June 1.
