We Promote Social Impact

Positive social impact is created from an activity, project, program or policy.  Are you using your talents or expertise to help people, the community, the economy, or the environment? If you are doing something in your professional life that makes the world a better place, then you are a community hero and we want to hear from you!

Who’s Eligible?

Community heroes are regular people, groups, organizations, or businesses that are contributing to social good in a positive and measurable way. * Applicants must be Academy Members to apply.

What we fund

We fund start-ups and existing programs/projects that further social good. Tell us how you are promoting social good and how we can help!

Scholarship or Grant?

Both! Grants are given to help community heroes fund a program or charitable event. Must be a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization to receive a grant. Sponsorships are offered to help you fund a program or event while also promoting the Community Heroes Program as your sponsor. You do not have to be a nonprofit to apply for sponsorship cash.
