Jenny’s Heroes, an effort started by ex-talk show host Jenny Jones, provides grants to individuals who submit the best ideas for tangible, lasting community projects.
Jenny’s Heroes provides grants of up to $25,000 each to fund projects that promise long-term community benefits. Through the fifty grant recipients so far, funds have been used to provide items and services such as library books, school computers, firefighting gear, nursing home upgrades, sports equipment, free dental services, wheelchairs, coats for children in domestic violence shelters, and a running track at a women’s prison.
The program’s focus is primarily on smaller communities where fundraising can be difficult.
