Snap Finance Foundation Gives $150,000 to 16 Nonprofit Organizations
2023 Community Grant Program Delivers Funding for Nonprofits to Address Food Insecurity, Education, Job Training, Financial Access, and More
Salt Lake City, Utah—December 20, 2023—For the second consecutive year, the Snap Finance Foundation has awarded grants totaling more than $150,000 as part of its Community Grant program. Snap awarded grants to 16 nonprofit organizations for their exceptional work in the U.S., U.K., and Costa Rica – three countries with Snap Finance offices.
The Snap Finance Foundation Community Grant program reflects Snap Finance’s vision for a world where everyone has the means to thrive. Grants were awarded to nonprofits that focus on at least one of Snap’s giving pillars:
- Food security and basic needs
- Education and job training
- Financial access and community development
“We are proud to support many deserving organizations through our grant program. Through our volunteer work and community outreach, we’ve reached thousands of people, and we’re excited to reach thousands more by supporting important causes such as education, financial literacy, housing, basic needs, and more,” said Kendall Banks, Senior Manager of Community Impact at Snap Finance. “We believe in the ripple effect of kindness and strive to be a catalyst for positive transformation.”
Partnering with the Community Foundation of Utah allowed Snap to double its impact this year, supporting more organizations in their efforts to empower underserved individuals and communities.
One person positively impacted by the grant program said, "Thank you for supporting this program. It's taking the trauma out of the traumatic life of homelessness. Instead of just existing and surviving, I’m starting to live my life.”
Through its internal program, Snap Cares, Snap Finance is committed to “doing well by doing good.” This manifests through employee volunteerism, financial contributions, collaborations with nonprofit organizations, in-kind donations, and creating spaces for inclusive conversations through Snap’s Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). Snap strives to create a strong culture of service and belonging where everyone is empowered to be their best.
