Disney to Award Grants to Local Nonprofits

13 November 2012 No Comment

About 100 Central Florida nonprofits have applied for grants through the Disney Helping Kids Shine grant program.

Disney will be awarding grants from $10,000 to $75,000 to nonprofits that focus on building bright futures for local children. Last year, Disney donated a total of $1.5 million to 59 local nonprofits and Florida school districts through the Disney Helping Kids Shine initiative.

Nancy Gidusko, director of community relations for Walt Disney World, said:

At Walt Disney World, we invest in programs that can make a lasting change in our community and promote the success and well-being of children and families. We do that by sharing our in-kind resources and talents, but we also make significant financial investments in organizations we believe achieve outstanding results.

Recipients of the grant awards will be announced sometime in March 2013.
