State Farm seeks neighborhood projects | Cultivate
State Farm celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2022 by expanding the State Farm Neighborhood Assist program.
The program will award 100 grants of $25,000 to nonprofit organizations to help fund neighborhood improvement projects.
“State Farm Neighborhood Assist truly embodies the spirit of what our company has been for 100 years – being a good neighbor,” said Rasheed Merritt, assistant vice president of State Farm.
The submission phase begins at 1 p.m. on February 16 and ends when 4,000 submissions are received.
Individuals can submit a cause at www.neighborhoodassist.com. The State Farm Review Committee will then narrow the field to 200, which will be put to public vote between April 27 and May 6.
Individuals can vote 10 times a day, every day for 10 days for their favorite causes from the list of finalists. Voting will take place at www.neighborhoodassist.com.
The 100 causes that receive the most votes will each win a $25,000 grant, which will be announced on June 7.
Last year, 125,000 people voted more than 3 million times to support their favorite causes, selecting winners from towns and cities.
Since the program began, more than 380 causes have received a total of $10 million to bring about change in their communities.
