On July 28th, Newman’s Own Foundation announced their latest grant opportunity called The Empowerment Project which honours unsung heros in your organization. Those staff members, volunteers, or founders that go above and beyond to advance other people’s lives in the community without asking for recognition are the ideal nominees for this grant.

The foundation has been supplying grants in Canada for over 25 years and supplying similar grants to this one for the last three years.
Whether your charity supports human rights, youth, veteran affairs, education, health services, or generally the empowerment and development of society, you can nominate your unsung heroes to continue to do the appreciated work they do everyday.
