Starbucks Coffee Company Announces Community Parks Grant Program
Deadline: April 3, 2006

Starbucks Coffee Company ( <a href=""></a> ) has announced a commitment of $1 million in 2006 for the improvement of local parks in Washington state’s King, Pierce, and Snohomish counties through the Starbucks Neighborhood Parks Program.

As part of this effort, the 2006 Starbucks Neighborhood Park Grants Program will award $450,000 in grants (i.e., thirty grants of $15,000 each) to community groups undertaking park-improvement projects throughout King, Pierce, and Snohomish counties.

Any neighborhood-based organization, such as a community council, a group of neighbors, a neighborhood association, or a nonprofit organization serving their neighborhood, can apply. The organization must have tax-exempt status as defined under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code. If the organization does not have 501(c)(3) status, it can designate a fisacl sponsor with 501(c)(3) status. Lastly, the organization must have open, non-discriminatory membership and actively seek involvement from neighborhood residents or businesses.

The project must be focused on developing, improving, and revitalizing a neighborhood park or open space to benefit a neighborhood.
