Hershey Heartwarming Project Action Grants

The Hershey Heartwarming Project Action Grants program helps young people build more meaningful connections and create more inclusive and empathetic schools and communities.

Grants of $250 are provided for efforts to:

  • create inclusive communities;
  • support authentic connection and belonging; and,
  • advance mental well-being.

Other advocacy and action projects that incorporate themes of connection, belonging, well-being, empathy, and inclusion are also considered.

Social distancing and virtual projects are welcome.

While applications are accepted from educators, adults, and community organizations, priority will be given to applications submitted by youth and youth-driven initiatives with a strong focus on connection, inclusion, and progress.
