Project Description: Walmart and the Walmart Foundation generally provide more than $1 billion in cash and in-kind to support programs that align with our philanthropic priorities. Our philanthropic approach is rooted in our company’s mission to create opportunity, so people can live better. Through the philanthropic investments of Walmart.org, we strive to systematically address some of the biggest economic, environmental, and social challenges faced in the world today. But we can’t do it alone. We work closely with our grantees to address large-scale environmental and social challenges in three priority areas:
- Creating economic opportunity,
- Enhancing sustainability in supply chains,
- Strengthening community
Walmart believes that strengthening local communities creates value – for our business as well as society. That is why we empower each Walmart store, Sam’s Club and distribution center to strengthen and support their local communities through local donations, fundraising and participate in corporate cause-marketing campaigns. These local grants are designed to address the unique needs of the communities where we operate. Management at the facility to which you are applying will review the application and make initial funding recommendations on all submitted requests. Organizations may only submit a total number of 25 applications and/or receive up to 25 grants within the 2019 grant cycle.
