Lista de control de elegibilidad


Los fondos deben beneficiar el área de servicios de la instalación: los cesionarios potenciales deben ser organizaciones sin fines de lucro con programas que beneficien a las comunidades dentro del área de servicios de la tienda Walmart, Sam's Club o el centro de logística desde el que solicitan los fondos.

Walmart and the Walmart Foundation have identified four core areas of giving:
Lucha contra el hambre y alimentación saludableSostenibilidad, Empoderamiento económico de las mujeres y Oportunidad laboral. To ensure that your application has the best chance of being funded, the proposed use of the grant should fit within one of these areas of giving.  Primary consideration for the Community Grant program is to support local organizations with programs that align with Walmart and the Foundation's areas of giving.  No obstante, los programas que no se alineen con estas áreas también serán considerados. These include programs that are geared toward strengthening the local communities, for example: local organizations providing health and dental screenings, support for local police and fire departments and local school-based initiatives. Si deseas solicitar fondos a través de una tienda Sam's Club, también se consideran otras áreas. Learn more about the Programa de ayuda de Sam's Club.
