How We Give

Together, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation generally provide more than $1 billion in cash and in-kind to support programs that align with our philanthropic priorities.

Our philanthropic approach is rooted in our company’s mission to create opportunity, so people can live better. Through the philanthropic investments of Walmart.org, we strive to systematically address some of the biggest economic, environmental, and social challenges faced in the world today. But we can’t do it alone. We work closely with our grantees to address large scale environmental and social challenges in three priority areas:

  • Creating economic opportunity
  • Enhancing sustainability in supply chains
  • Strengthening community

How to Apply

Walmart.org supports work directly related to our philanthropic strategies and geographic focus. For some programs, we invite proposals by directly contacting organizations for other programs we publish requests for proposals (RFPs), accept letters of inquiry (LOIs), or have an open application process.

Requirements vary, so it’s important to review eligibility requirements and program guidelines before starting your application.
