Sprint To Award $50,000 In Grants In 2014 To Outstanding New York City-area Nonprofits

Sprint (NYSE: S) announced today that it will award three grants to New York City nonprofit organizations this year, totaling $50,000. Grants will be awarded in the amounts of $25,000, $15,000 and $10,000 through the Sprint Foundation, Sprint’s philanthropic arm, as part of the Sprint Local Giving Program. This is the fifth year Sprint has offered the program to New York City-area nonprofits.

“We continue to be impressed by the caliber of applications we receive from the New York City area,” said Debby Ballard, director of Community Affairs for Sprint. “We look forward to seeing the innovative programs that the New York City-area nonprofit community has in store for 2014.”

How the Sprint Local Giving Program works

The Sprint Local Giving Program is a competitive grant program that will award grants to 501(c)3 not-for-profit organizations to fund programs that serve K-12 youth while using technology to provide a meaningful impact in one or more of the following Sprint focus areas:

  • Youth development (including mentoring, leadership and academic achievement)
  • Arts and culture
  • Environmental stewardship

Eligible organizations must be located in the New York City area (Bronx, Kings, Nassau, New York, Putnam, Queens, Richmond, Rockland, Suffolk and Westchester counties in New York, and Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex and Union counties in New Jersey). Additional eligibility requirements can be found at www.sprint.com/localgiving.

Nominations for the Sprint Local Giving Program will be accepted between 9 a.m. Central time on Thursday, May 1, and 5 p.m. Central time on Friday, June 13, at www.sprint.com/localgiving.

Sprint will then review all applications and notify the three finalist organizations, each of which will receive one of the three available New York City grants - $25,000, $15,000 or $10,000. Sprint will also provide the three finalists with video-capable Sprint mobile phones for a three-week period. The three finalists will use these devices to create short videos highlighting the programs for which they are requesting funding. These videos will be judged by Sprint to determine which level of funding will be awarded to each organization. (Additional details about the video will be provided to the finalist organizations at the appropriate time; organizations applying for a Sprint Local Giving Program grant should not submit video applications until they’ve received instructions from Sprint.)
