Grants for STEM Projects Addressing a Social Issue
General Motors’ Corporate Giving Grants support projects in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), as well as community development. Projects should demonstrate innovative approaches to address a defined social issue. Nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations are eligible to apply. Interested applicants must submit a Letter of Inquiry after completing a short eligibility quiz online; selected applicants will then be invited to submit a full proposal. All grant requests must satisfy the criteria noted on the company’s website, including submission of a logic model that supports how General Motors’ desired social outcomes will be achieved (only required for requests $25,000 and above); submission of a project budget that does not exceed 15 percent in indirect costs/overhead expenses; and demonstration of a strategy to accomplish the applicant’s mission, successfully operate programs, and evaluate and learn from outcomes. General Motors does not limit the request amount and evaluates each request on its merit.
Deadline: September 30, 2020, for Letters of Inquiry
