Does your library have an idea for a program or service you could set up to benefit your community? Walmart might be able to help!
Through their Community Grant Program, the Walmart Foundation provides funds to nonprofit and government organizations serving communities. “Walmart and the Walmart Foundation have identified four core areas of giving: Hunger Relief & Healthy Eating, Sustainability, Women’s Economic Empowerment, and Opportunity.”
The guidelines are here; so read through them to see if your idea might fit into their funding. The deadline for this round of grants is December 31, 2016; but if your idea is more suitable for setting up later, this is an annual program.
They have set up an FAQ section here, and reading through these might give you some ideas.
