Monogram Loves Kids Foundation now accepting grant applications

The Monogram Loves Kids Foundation will award over $300,000 to charitable organizations that sponsor programs benefiting children and their families in the eight regional areas in which Monogram does business.

Registered 501(c)3 public organizations interested in applying for these grants, which will range from $500 to $10,000, should visit access the application form. All applications must be mailed in to the address listed on the application by 5 p.m. May 31. All applicants must be located within 100 miles of Monogram Meat Snacks, located at 521 N. 5th St., Chandler

Funding for the grants comes from the Foundation’s annual fundraiser in Memphis, Tenn. In 2017, six charitable organizations in the Chandler area received grants: Love Inc. of Worthington, Pipestone County Food Shelf, Living Word Lutheran Church, St. Mary’s School, Murray County Central, and the Trent Area Scholarship Fund.

A committee of team members at the Monogram Meat Snacks plant will review the grant applications from Chandler area organizations.

The Monogram Loves Kids Foundation was founded in 2010 as Monogram Foods’ charitable fund to raise money for children’s charities in areas of the country where Monogram team members live and work. Between 2010 and 2017, Monogram has donated over $1.1 million to charities focused on children and their families.
