In every state we serve across the country, there are underserved populations who need help. Our State Advisory Councils, made up of Walmart associates representing each state, including Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico, determine the needs within each state, review all eligible grant applications and make funding recommendations to the Walmart Foundation.
The State Giving Program awards grants from the Foundation of $25,000 to $250,000.
Nonprofit organizations must operate on a regional/state level or be affiliates/chapters of larger organizations that operate on the regional/state level.
If you are applying for funding for an organization or effort in Northwest Arkansas (Benton or Washington Counties), where Walmart's Home Office is located, please read about our Northwest Arkansas Giving Program.
