Additional Eligibility Criteria:

To be eligible to receive a grant from the SpartanNash Foundation, the organization must be a qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit located within a 30-mile radius of the more than 150 retail stores, 17 wholesale and military distribution centers and service centers located in Grand Rapids, MI; Minneapolis, MN; Norfolk, VA; and Indianapolis, IN. The Foundation will only consider applications from organizations providing services in these regions.

To determine geographic eligibility:

The most common type of U.S. tax-exempt nonprofit organization falls under category 501(c)(3), whereby a nonprofit organization is exempt from federal income tax if its activities have the following purposes: charitable, religious, educational, scientific, literary, testing for public safety, fostering amateur sports competition, or preventing cruelty to children or animals.

The SpartanNash Foundation does not make grants to:

- Organizations that are not 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofits
- Organizations outside a 30-mile radius of retail stores, distribution centers and service centers
- Organizations that do not align with the missions of hunger, shelter or patriotism
- Organizations that have previously received a donation from the SpartanNash Foundation through a retail scan held in the same calendar year
- Individuals
- Endowments
- National ceremonies, memorials, conferences, fundraising dinners, testimonials or other similar events
- Elected officials
- Organizations that do not comply with the non-discrimination policy
- Organizations that receive funds or product donations through SpartanNash Company

If any of the above apply to your organization or grant request, you will not be considered for funding.
