Nissan Foundation Continues Its Mission to Support Neighboring Communities

Nissan doesn’t just produce quality cars; the company also has a reputation for positively impacting its surrounding communities. Currently, the Nissan Foundation is calling for Letters of Intent from non-profit organizations seeking grant funding to continue serving their communities.

Non-profit organizations with 501 (c)(3) status and which are located in Nissan’s neighboring communities are eligible to submit grant requests. Those communities include Southern California, Middle Tennessee, South Central Mississippi, Eastern Michigan and the New York and Atlanta Metros.

“The Nissan Foundation is committed to enriching people’s lives in the neighborhoods where Nissan operates,” said Vicki Smith, the Foundation’s executive director. “We are looking for educational programs that foster a greater appreciation for diversity while creating a positive influence in the community.”

Founded in 1992, the Nissan Foundation has provided grant funding in excess of $7 million. This year’s applicants will have until Nov. 15 to submit grant proposals. Recipients will be awarded in July.

Of course, in an effort to save trees and maintain environmental consciousness, you will find the application online.
