Bring $25,000 to your community

Good afternoon,

Have you ever wanted to help your community with a problem but didn’t know where to start? Maybe it’s a run-down park or to help the impoverished in your community. Now, YOU have the power to fix it.

State Farm Neighborhood Assist, a crowd-sourced philanthropic initiative, lets communities determine where grant funding is awarded. Anyone 18 years of age and older in the U.S. can participate.

The application is short and simple, and you can learn more by visiting www.neighborhoodassist.com. The program officially launches on June 5. You, or someone you know, could be the catalyst for positive change to your community cause!

Your application will be judged based on your answers to the following three questions:

  • How much does the Cause focus on an unmet need in this community?
  • Why do you feel the $25,000 would address the unmet need?
  • How much of a lasting impact on this community would the grant have?

 

The submission phase starts June 5 and ends when 2,000 submissions are reached. (Last year we had 2,000 submissions in under 24 hours) You can prepare now by going to the website and downloading the submission guide. You can submit one cause in one of the three categories of safety, community development or education. All you have to do is submit the cause; you don’t have to “run the program.”

After the 2,000 submissions are reached, the State Farm Review Committee will score all the submissions to identify the top 200 finalists.

Meet the 2018 Winning Causes

The top 200 finalists will then be uploaded to www.neighborhoodassist.com where you can vote for 10 days - from August 14-August 23. Each person gets up to 10 votes per day, every day.

The top 40 causes with the most votes will each win a $25,000 grant from State Farm!

Winners will be announced on September 25.

Please reach out if you have any questions.


Best,

Ben
