Stan, please share to list-serv.

Hey all,

I just wanted to share a grant opportunity through Wal-Mart that I am not sure if many are aware of.

At our Wal-Mart the human recourse lady is awesome and donates regularly to our program. On a resent visit she said you know the real money is at corporate and gave me the following web address and gave me a few instructions for success. 

Pre-Qualify questions:

Your organization and proposed program should directly benefit the communities within the service area of the facility to which you plan to apply.

You are a 501c3 organization (School) - Co. Financial director or school bookkeeper can help with the numbers you will need. 

Select none of the above on the 2 question that that is an option

You are requesting more than $250.00

1. For best results don't ask for the max amount. ($2,500) 

2. Having matching funds for a project helps tremendously.

3. Only select one store to help you instead of multiple (once you start you will see what I mean) 

4. Make contact with the human resource / donation person at your store inform them what you are wanting to do and follow up with them so they can send to corporate for review. 

I filled out a grant app 2 weeks ago. Took about an hour and found out yesterday we were awarded the amount we asked for. 

I thought many of you might want to take a look.
