Celebrating Communities of Color grants program

The 2014 Celebrating Communities of Color application is now available.

The General Mills Foundation is celebrating 60 years of giving. For the 2014 Celebrating Communities of Color Grant Program, we will award a pool of $1 million grants ranging from $ 10,000 - $60,000. This is a one-time grant offering for 2014 only and in recognition of the Foundation's 60th anniversary. The grants are open to nonprofits including schools, theaters and other Twin Cities organizations with programs that support people of color. The program was established 10 years ago in recognition of the Foundation's 50th anniversary and aligns with General Mills' commitment to diversity, which is a company core value and a key business strategy.

Since 2004, the program has served more than 500,000 children, families and individuals across the seven county metro area with a total of $4 million in grants.
