"Through the Community Grant Program, Walmart's associates are proud to support the needs of their communities by providing grants to local organizations. Walmart and the Walmart Foundation have identified four core areas of giving: Hunger Relief & Healthy Eating, Sustainability, Women's Economic Empowerment and Career Opportunity. 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. However, programs that do not align with these areas may also be given consideration. These include programs that are geared toward strengthening the local communities."
