Comcast NBCUniversal Foundation Delivers $3.475M in Project Innovation Grants

The Comcast NBCUniversal Foundation and NBCUniversal Local, division of NBCUniversal, announced $3.475 million in Project Innovation grants to 100 non-profits in 11 markets.

The grantees will use the funds to help move their communities forward through programs that are helping to shape the next generation of storytellers, fostering a culture of equity and inclusion, empowering youth with the tools they need to succeed, and inspiring individuals to participate and volunteer in community engagement initiatives.

“For 2021, we increased our grant funding by $1 million dollars to help more organizations continue their important work. This year, we’re supporting organizations that are working hard to address the systemic inequities that have persisted in our communities and were made worse by the pandemic,” said Valari Staab, president, NBCUniversal Local.

“We’re proud for Comcast NBCUniversal Foundation’s funds to be used by all of these outstanding groups to help create opportunities for others and strengthen the communities we serve,” added Jessica Clancy, vice president, Corporate Social Responsibility, NBCUniversal.
