Sprint Foundation: Grant Opportunities for Nonprofits

Since its establishment in 1989, the Sprint Foundation (the philanthropic arm of Sprint) has provided millions of dollars to community organizations across the country.

A separate legal entity from Sprint, the Sprint Foundation makes a huge impact where it is needed most, supporting hundreds of organizations every year that focus on education, arts and culture, youth development, community development and disaster relief. Through direct grants, the Sprint Foundation acts as a champion for our communities.


If your organization meets our criteria (see pages 3-4), we encourage you to submit a grant application through this link.
