The NBCUniversal Foundation supports today’s changemakers: those individuals, programs and organizations that strive to move our communities and our nation forward.
To build stronger communities, we need organizations with innovative ideas. That’s why the NBCUniversal Foundation launched its new signature grant program, 21st Century Solutions, which enables local non-profits implementing new and progressive programs to compete for funding in the 10 communities served by the NBC owned television stations. 21st Century Solutions supports high-impact emerging programs in the categories of Arts and Media, Civic Engagement, Community Development, Education, Environment, Jobs and Economic Empowerment, and Technology and Innovation. Together we can give good ideas in our community a chance to be great.
