Building on the success of last year’s 1,500-person strong community service event, NVIDIA is now accepting proposals to support a major, innovative local program, as the focus of the 2012 NVIDIA Project Inspire campaign.
Since its inception in 2007, NVIDIA Project Inspire has contributed more than $1.6 million in direct benefits and volunteer hours to four Silicon Valley organizations, schools and neighborhoods. More than 1,500 NVIDIA employees, family and community volunteers participate each year in a single day of service, designed to foster a greener, cleaner and healthier region. Project Inspire is held each year in place of the company’s holiday party.
From now through March 15, community organizations, city offices and schools are encouraged to submit a proposal detailing how NVIDIA and Project Inspire can devote financial and volunteer resources towards a transformational effort.
The winning organization will receive materials and project management services up to $250,000. Two additional finalists will each receive a $2,000 donation and another seven organizations will receive $750. Download the application at www.nvidia.com/projectinspire .
