Nominate Community Causes for a Chance to Win

Helping our neighborhood is important for many reasons such as keeping our neighborhood safe, and connected. State Farm Neighborhood Assist® recognizes this importance, and have created an exciting opportunity for nieghbors across the US to help change their communities for the better. This philanthropic program awards 40 causes a $25,000 grant. Anyone in the United States can submit a cause beginning March 9 through March 30. Ultimately, voters will decide which community improvement projects win big.

State Farm Neighborhood Assist asks individuals to identify causes that would help make their communities safer, stronger and better-educated. They will accept up to 4,000 causes, then the State Farm Youth Advisory Board (YAB) will narrow down the field, using a scoring rubric to identify the top 200 submissions. The public will have a chance to vote 10 times a day from May 14 through June 3 for their favorite causes from the list of finalists. The 40 causes that receive the most votes will win a $25,000 grant. The nominations and votes will be accepted exclusively through a free Facebook app.

Since the program started four years ago, State Farm has awarded $3 million to 120 communities across North America, supporting a wide variety of causes, including fighting childhood hunger, helping homeless veterans, revitalizing parks, improving literacy and offering athletic programs for children with disabilities.
Last year, people cast millions of votes for their favorite causes, selecting winners from small towns and big cities. To learn more about State Farm Neighborhood Assist or to get the free Facebook app, visit www.statefarm.com/neighborhoodassist.
