In December, MOWSF received a $60,000 grant from the Walmart Foundation. The award was part of the foundation’s California State Giving Program, which awards grants twice a year to local organizations that address community needs and make a significant impact. The grant will go toward nourishing homebound seniors.
The grant is the second largest foundation grant MOWSF has received this fiscal year. “Because government funding accounts for only 38 percent of MOWSF’s funding,” said Ashley McCumber, CEO and executive director of MOWSF, “support from corporate partners like Walmart ensures that we can help the seniors we serve live a ‘nourished life.’”
Twice a year, the Walmart Foundation’s California State Giving Program awards grants to local organizations that address the needs of the communities they serve and make a significant social impact. Three other Bay Area nonprofits also received grants – the Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley, Valley Verde and Silicon Valley Education Foundation – for a total of $160,000 in grants.
