Grants for Grassroots Community Projects

Tom’s of Maine 50 States for Good

Tom’s of Maine 50 States for Good initiative supports grassroots organizations throughout the country working to do good in their communities. In 2012, the program will provide five grants of $20,000 and one grant of $50,000 to nonprofit organizations in order to help them enhance their community projects. Eligible projects must have a positive impact on the community in one of the following areas: Environmental Goodness, Healthy Goodness, or Human Goodness. A review panel of leaders from around the country selects up to 51 finalists. Information on these finalists will then be posted on the Tom’s of Maine website in September so that the public can vote for which six projects should be awarded funding. The deadline for submitting online applications is 8pm ET June 12, 2012. Visit the company’s website to learn more about this program and submit an online application.
