TPP Currently Accepting $1,000 Grant Applications

The Pollination Project is handing out grants to individuals with a plan to better their communities and the world.

Nonprofit The Pollination Project, founded by Dallas-based entrepreneur Ari Nessel, is providing a $1,000 grant every day for one year to individuals looking to fund an altruistic idea or project. Currently, the initiative is accepting grant applications from aspirants hoping to extend their compassion to the planet, animals, and people. As a part of the application process, The Pollination Project encourages applicants to send a short video detailing more about the prospective project. The nonprofit will take less than 45 days to review each application and inform the candidate whether or not their project will receive funding. Nessel’s hope is that through the grants, changemakers will help make the world a better and more sustainable place to live.
