Tom’s of Maine Invites Nominations for 2014 50 States for Good Competition

Tom’s of Maine is inviting nominations from nonprofit organizations for an opportunity to share in $510,000 in funding for local community projects. Now in its sixth year, the 50 States for Good competition recognizes organizations and projects committed to meaningful change and work that addresses pressing local needs.

Fifty-one organizations — one from each state and the District of Columbia — will be chosen by public vote to receive $10,000 each in support of a current or future community project or event. In past years, the program has funded community playgrounds, sustainable nature trails, shelter and food for the homeless, and animal care. Any person with a valid email address can register as a member of the Tom’s of Maine online community and cast a vote.

To nominate a project, an official representative of a nonprofit organization must submit a brief essay that describes the organization’s work and the scope of the proposed project. To be eligible, organizations must be a nonprofit operating in one of the fifty United States or the District of Columbia and submit proof of their 501(c)(3) status.

Visit the Tom’s of Maine website for eligibility and application guidelines.
