Grants to USA non-profit organizations that provide high-quality, innovative, and effective programs focusing on: promoting greater access to postsecondary education, the preservation of natural resources, and/or providing basic social and human services. The Foundation's priorities for each of its three focus areas are outlined below.
1. Access to Postsecondary Education:
* Organizations and programs that positively impact the educational prospects of underserved youth, ages 14 to 18, in middle and high school
* Organizations and programs that provide access to the tools and information needed to pursue higher education (e.g. 2-4 year college, culinary or technical school)
2. Preservation of Natural Resources:
* Programs or projects that conserve and restore water ecosystems, including local lakes, rivers, and coastlines
* Programs or projects that protect and preserve open spaces, including local parks and trails
* The creation of community gardens that promote food security for those most in need
3. Good Neighbor Grants allow Darden to partner with vital organizations such as Habitat for Humanity International, the American Red Cross and Feeding America food banks, which are core to the success and vibrancy of every community we serve. In Central Florida, Good Neighbor Grants also support educational, arts and cultural, and social services organizations. These grants are also reflected by the Foundation's partnerships with Heart of Florida United Way and United Arts of Central Florida.
