Pepsi Refresh Grant Project
Deadline: New Grant Cycle Every Month
In an effort to support those who generate innovative, optimistic ideas, the Pepsi Refresh Project (www.refresheverything.com), will award more than $20 million in 2010 to move communities forward. The program launched on January 13 and exceeded expectations by receiving the monthly limit of 1,000 submissions in less than seven days with at least one from each state in the U.S. So submit your grant project as close to the first of the month as possible.
Individuals and organizations can apply for grants to benefit a variety of projects and site visitors vote for the best ideas for funding. Pepsi will fund projects that make a difference in six categories: Health, Arts & Culture, Food & Shelter, The Planet, Neighborhoods and Education. Simply submit an idea and get your supporters to vote and vote and vote — the projects with the highest number of votes each month win the grant. Grants are accepted for $5,000, $25,000, $50,000 or $250,000.
