The seventh annual 50 States for Good program is now accepting entries. We invite you to join us again as we celebrate and reward grassroots community goodness across the nation. Nonprofits in every state and Washington, D.C. will share an unprecedented $1M+ in funding for projects to better their communities – this year with a new twist!

Between now and Aug. 26, Tom’s wants to hear what one thing you would do to better your community. Using the hashtags #OneWayToHelp #entry and your state hashtag (e.g. #NY, #CA), share with us in a few words on Twitter or Instagram how you’d help and we’ll be randomly selecting one person from every state and the District of Columbia to give $20,000 to the local nonprofit of their choice!
