Apply For Funding

We help communities around the world by funding many different initiatives through donations and sponsorships. Both types of funding have a positive social impact, but they have different objectives. Our donations are given as gifts whereas our sponsorships are part of our brand marketing initiatives.

Unfortunately, eligibility does not guarantee funding. We receive tens of thousands of eligible requests every year and follow a rigorous evaluation process to ensure that our funds are invested with the utmost care and responsibility.
