Walmart: State Giving Program
Through the State Giving Program, the Walmart Foundation supports organizations with programs that align with our mission to create opportunities so people can live better. The State Giving Program awards grants starting at $25,000 to nonprofit organizations that serve a particular state or region.
One application per organization is allowed.
The Foundation has adopted four areas of focus: Hunger Relief & Nutrition, Education, Workforce Development, Environmental Sustainability and Women's Economic Empowerment. The Walmart Foundation encourages funding requests that align with at least one of its four areas of focus - programs that do not align with the four areas of focus will not be considered.
The State Giving Program awards grants from the Foundation of $25,000 to $250,000.
