Do You Want to Create Change?

Students from the Walking School Bus enjoying after-school programs.
The Salvation Army Kroc Center’s Walking School Bus in Camden, New Jersey – a 2018 Community Change Grantee – provides students with critical after-school programming they wouldn’t otherwise have access to.

Our $1,500 Community Change Grant program works to provide support to the growing network of advocates, organizations, and agencies using new, engaging, and inclusive programs and projects to create lasting change at the grassroots level. We’ve funded over 100 projects to date –– read the stories of our 2018 grantees here .

Funded projects should:

  • Increase physical activity and active transportation in a specific community
  • Engage people and organizations new to the efforts of walking and walkability
  • Demonstrate a culture of inclusive health
  • Create and support healthy, active, and engaged communities

Applications are open until November 8th. We’d love to hear all about your dream plans for activating healthy, active, and engaged places to live, work, and play.
