LOS ANGELES — The Wonderful Company today announced that its 2021 $1 million Wonderful Community Grant applications process is now live, continuing the company’s commitment to investing in and collaborating with the communities where its employees live and work. Over the last six years, The Wonderful Company and its owners, philanthropists and entrepreneurs Lynda and Stewart Resnick, have provided $4 million in Wonderful Community Grants directly to more than 50 area non-profits and 165 schools in the San Joaquin Valley.
Now entering its sixth year, the Wonderful Community grants program demonstrates the company’s long standing commitment to impacting multigenerational change in the Central Valley. The funds will directly support game-changing programs at local schools and non-profit organizations, with a special emphasis on health and wellness, community beautification, family support and COVID-19 recovery efforts. All applications must be received by August 31 for priority consideration, but will be reviewed on an ongoing basis past the August deadline.
“The Wonderful Community Grants provide teachers and organizations with critical funding to run programs in the communities where our employees call home,” said Andy Anzaldo, Chief Operating Officer, Corporate Social Responsibility at The Wonderful Company. “Each year, we are impressed with the breadth and quality of grant applications we receive, and we look forward to reviewing this year’s entries. The Central Valley is the heart of our business and the organizations we partner with are dedicated to enriching our communities now, and for future generations.”
