“Our culture at OneCause is built around a shared passion for building better tomorrows and the Corporate Grants Program helps empower developing nonprofits with access to technology, resources, and fundraising mentorship,” said Steve Johns, chief executive officer for OneCause. “Each of our selected 2022 grantees represents an important community organization with great potential, and we’re honored to help them grow their impact.”
The inaugural grantee class includes:
- BIO Girls, ‘Beautiful Inside and Out,’ provides a 12-week program combining life-skills curriculum, small-group mentoring, community service, and physical activity to help adolescent girls improve their self-esteem. The organization plans to consolidate disparate technology systems to scale its fundraising efforts and maximize donor dollars to reach their bold goal to impact 1 in 5 girls in North Dakota and 3,500 annually region wide by the end of 2025.
- First Fruits Farm, a faith-based nonprofit, is dedicated to providing fresh, nutritious food for the hungry through volunteer service and community partnerships. Since 2004, the organization has donated 20 million pounds of produce with the support of more 13,000 volunteers. The organization is in the early stages of a total digital transformation to elevate their fundraising activities that are so vital to expanding its mission.
- Mental Health America of West Central Indiana, Inc improves the life quality of those experiencing mental illness, providing housing and care, education and programs, treatment, and supportive services to at-risk community members. With the technology grant, the organization will be able to increase the agency’s resource capacity for direct service and enable the agency to tell more targeted stories to the greater community that decrease mental health stigma within the community.
The OneCause Grants Program is open to any registered 501c3 organization in the United States and Canada. Grantees are selected based on the overall need, how technology will help the organization further its mission, and alignment with three core focus areas: Mental Health & Wellness, Community, and Sustainability.
