Community Thrives

  • February 28, 2019

The A Community Thrives program — part of the USA Today Network, of which we are a member — is seeking applications for grants from local nonprofits. The program will help organizations fundraise and will also award 16 grants.

Projects must contribute to community building, with a preference for impacting under-served individuals and groups. That means activities, projects or events that create or enhance the sense of community among individuals or groups in a neighborhood, city, or region.

To submit your idea, visit act.usatoday.com. There you can also find more information about the program and examples of previous awardees.

Here's a timeline of how the program works:

Organizations must submit their application by Feb. 28.

If your idea is accepted, ACT will connect your group with CrowdRise, a crowd-funding website owned by GoFundMe. Fundraising will take place from March 18-April 12. Organizations keep the money they raise, even if they don't later win a grant.

Organizations that meet a fundraising goal will be eligible for grants on top of the money they raise through CrowdRise. These grants will be announced in mid-May.

A Community Thrives is offering 16 grants in locations across the USA Today Network:

Three $100,000 grants

Seven $50,000 grants

Six $25,000 grants

This year, there will also be $200,000 of weekly bonus promotions throughout the program, as well as an opportunity to win up to $1.3 million in local community operating grants.
