Advocare Foundation Grant Application

Mission
The AdvoCare Foundation focuses on the life-destroying epidemic of childhood obesity in an effort to help fulfill its larger mission – to help all children be happy, healthy, and safe. The AdvoCare Foundation is making a difference by identifying and attacking these three main pillars of childhood obesity: physical activity, nutrition education and access to healthy food. We believe this will help change not only the habits of the child but the entire family. The earlier you invest in a child, the greater the hope that child has to live a safe, healthy and happy life. Children surrounded by elevated risk factors such as crime, family violence, poor health, and high-poverty are the most at-risk. That’s why we focus on funding programs with long-term solutions to improving the physical health and wellness of children in need in
the communities that need it most.

Guidelines
The Foundation has one annual deadline: February 15. Grant requests for program support are strongly encouraged; capital requests may be considered. Successful proposals are those with an emphasis on year-round programming and effort to promote positive change in the health and wellness habits of children. The majority of grants from the AdvoCare Foundation are one year in duration, at an average of $25,000 per grant. On occasion, multi-year support is awarded.

The Foundation believes in supporting communities where AdvoCare distributors are located and engaged. We value long-term partnerships with grantees, and give funding preference to previous grantees. We will not fund endowments, individual schools/sports teams, camps, or national organizations without a strong track record of local community buy-in.
