State Giving Program

January 18, 2016

The State Giving Program invests in all 50 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico. The Walmart Foundation has a State Advisory Council in each state, made up of Walmart associates representing local communities. Each Council helps identify local needs within its state, reviews all eligible grant applications and makes funding recommendations to the Walmart Foundation. Requests for funding within the scope of Focused Giving areas (Hunger Relief & Community Engagement) will be accepted during 3 grant cycles in 2017 – due Feb. 10, May 12, & Aug. 11. Organizations seeking funding for programs outside of hunger relief (e.g. for education programs) may only apply during cycle 3
