Grants of $3,000 to Idaho and southeastern Oregon middle and junior high school classes to support local nonprofits that are positively impacting communities where the funding source has a business presence. The purpose of this program is to promote awareness among students of community needs, create a lifelong interest in volunteerism and community involvement, develop skills to allocate limited resources, and increase civic engagement.

This program will allow middle/junior high school classes determine how to distribute their grant to up to three nonprofit organizations impacting their particular community.

Participant Requirements:

If selected, classes must agree to adhere to the following minimum Program requirements, although teachers may add additional elements to their project such as field trips, volunteering, etc.

1) Each student (individually or as a small group) must research a 501(c)3 designated nonprofit organization (non-religious) that serves a need in their local community

2) Each student/group must prepare a written summary of the nonprofit, the needs it addresses, the history of the nonprofit, number of people assisted annually, etc.

3) Each student/group must present an oral argument/presentation to act as an advocate for their selected nonprofit

4) The class must determine how to allocate the grant monies between up to three of the various organizations. The class may give the entire amount to one nonprofit.

5) Once the allocations are determined by the students, and approved by CenturyLink as meeting the requirements of the program, the selected nonprofit(s) will be invited by the students to a presentation at the school along with a representative of CenturyLink, so the students can present their donation, as well as discuss their decision-making process and what they learned from this project.
