Overview: This program aims to support diverse and underserved communities by providing awards to nonprofit organizations that make a difference in localities around the country. Awards will be provided to organizations that have demonstrated commitment and capacity to deliver culturally competent services, that support efforts to alleviate the impact of race-based discrimination and disparities, and that create a positive impact, specifically on diverse communities where at least 51 percent of the population/participants are people of color.

Support will be provided for projects involving:

  • Programming or activities for participation in projects that place an importance on personal development, an active and healthy lifestyle, or education
  • Improvements and/or renovations to existing buildings, grounds, and property, or for new facilities and/or grounds
  • Emergency needs that would somehow be keeping the organization from providing current services, such as natural disasters or other unforeseen circumstances that require special funding to help
  • Scholarships that provide full or partial funding to participate in programming provided by the organization

The maximum award amount is $25,000

Priority will be given to applicant organizations that operate near JD, Finish Line, and/or Finish Line at Macy’s stores.
