ICAN: Positive Programs for Youth in Chandler is among 200 organizations nationwide in the running for a State Farm Neighborhood Assist Grant, a crowd-sourced philanthropic initiative.
ICAN’s direct link to vote is NeighborhoodAssist.com/entry/2012722. Each person can vote 10 times each day. This grant would help serve even more youth in need, so ICAN is asking for the public’s help in voting for the organization, a spokesman said.
Public voting ends Friday, Aug. 24. People 18 or older in the U.S. may participate. The top 40 vote-getters each receive a $25,000 grant from State Farm.
ICAN is a grass-roots organization that has supported at-risk youth in Chandler for more than 27 years. Its free after-school programs use evidence-based curriculum to teach life skills to disadvantaged youth and put them on a path to a positive future.
