Talk show host and philanthropist Jenny Jones has announced that she will donate an additional $1 million to continue her Jenny’s Heroes
community grant program. The Jenny’s Heroes program awards grants to individuals who submit the best ideas for tangible, lasting community projects. Jenny’s Heroes provides grants of up to $25,000 each to fund projects that promise long-term community benefits. Through the fifty grant recipients so far, funds have been used to provide items and services such as library books, school computers, and coats for children in domestic violence shelters. The program’s focus is primarily on smaller communities where fundraising can be difficult. The application is online, and is VERY brief (600 characters to describe your project.) There is no specific deadline to apply.
