Disney to Award Grants to Local Nonprofits

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.
