Forty Causes Win State Farm Grants

More than 1.2 million votes came in during the Cause An Effect contest, with Skate for Change in Lincoln, Neb., winning top honors.

Community development projects account for more than half of the 40 projects for which nonprofits will be receiving $25,000 grants apiece from State Farm, which said more than 1.2 million votes were cast in its Cause An Effect contest.

The affiliated nonprofits of the 40 causes will receive the grants to create and execute a plan to address their causes. The top three causes in terms of votes were:

  • Skate for Change (67,252 votes) Lincoln, Neb. Affiliated nonprofit: Victory Ride Skate Park
  • Biomedical High School (45,615 votes) Mount Carmel, Ill. Affiliated nonprofit: Mount Carmel High School
  • Sherman Playground (45,421 votes) Nampa, Idaho. Affiliated nonprofit: Sherman Elementary School

"The considerable amount of votes shows the level of commitment and engagement within our neighborhoods to solve local issues," said Kellie Clapper, assistant vice president of Community Relations for State Farm. "We look forward to watching the 40 communities across the country come together to make their neighborhoods safer, stronger, and better educated with the help of Cause An Effect."
