Cable Company Set to Give 200,000 Grants to Nonprofits
MONROE, La. (KNOE) — More than $200,000 in grants are up for grabs for nonprofits. It is part of Sparklight’s Charitable Giving Fund and applications are being accepted now.
It is a national cable company with a charitable fund that supports education, digital literacy, community development, the fight against hunger and food insecurity.
“Last year, we donated approximately $200,000 across our entire US footprint. So it’s something we’re very proud of and plan to continue doing to serve our communities,” said Josh Williams, general manager of Sparklight in Monroe.
He says it’s very important to give back to the community. Williams says the company wants to make sure it has a presence in every region. Williams says he encourages nonprofits to apply.
“This funding can be used for anything like capital projects, facility improvements, program materials. We have selected in 2021 just over 60 organizations to provide funding to and that funding ranges from $1,000 to $4,000,” Williams said.
He says the aim is to give a helping hand to organizations in need and that all applicants will be shortlisted next month to receive the money.
“It is very important to use and the company to have a local presence. Part of Sparklight’s values is to drive progress, lend a helping hand and do the right thing for those we serve. So it’s really important that we’re part of that community,” Williams said.
Williams says the last day to apply for the Spring Grant is April 30, and if you miss it, the company will hold another giveaway in November. To apply, click here.
