Tom’s of Maine Invites Nonprofit Organizations to Apply for Fourth Annual “50 States for Good” Program
Deadline: June 12, 2012

Tom’s of Maine, a natural products company focused on oral and personal care, is accepting applications from nonprofit organizations in the United States for its “50 States for Good” program and will award a total of $150,000 in funding toward community projects.

Now in its fourth year, the 50 States for Good program seeks to uncover grassroots nonprofit groups working to address community needs and engage volunteers to get the work done.

Applicant programs must mobilize community volunteers and have a positive impact on the community in one of three areas — environmental goodness, healthy goodness, and human goodness.

Eligible applicants are nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations in good standing with operating budgets under $2 million. Individuals who wish to seek funding for their community projects are encouraged to work directly with a local nonprofit organization.

For the first time, this year’s program will feature fifty-one finalists, one from each state as well as the District of Columbia, as determined by a panel of independent judges. The six winning organizations will be determined by public vote. The organization with the most public support will receive $50,000 in sponsorship funding, while five additional organizations will each receive $20,000 based on the public vote.
