Nissan Foundation seeks grantees for 2013

The Nissan Foundation announce the call for Letters of Intent (LOI) for its 2013 grant year. The mission of the Nissan Foundation is to build community by valuing diversity. Non-profit organisations located in Southern California, North Central Texas, Middle Tennessee,
South Central Mississippi, Eastern Michigan, and the New York and Atlanta Metro areas are encouraged to apply with programs that support the Foundation's mission.

"The Nissan Foundation is committed to enriching people's lives in the neighborhoods where Nissan operates," said Vicki Smith, Executive Director of the Nissan Foundation. "The Foundation supports numerous educational programs that celebrate and foster appreciation for diversity while creating a positive influence in the community."
The Foundation was established in 1992. Over the past 20 years, the philanthropic organisation has contributed more than $6.4-million to more than 100 non-profit groups. The Foundation is committed to celebrating cultural diversity as a means to promote respect for others, generate alternative ways of thinking, strengthen self-awareness and enrich communities.

The Foundation application process is conducted electronically to eliminate paper waste and align with Nissan’s global mission to support a greener environment.

Organisations that meet the Foundation's eligibility requirements and that wish to apply for an initial grant from the Nissan Foundation must submit an LOI by Friday, November 16, 2012.  Nissan Foundation grants are awarded annually; the next grants will be awarded in July 2013.
