BLOOMINGTON, Ill., Oct. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Communities across the United States answered the call from State Farm® to submit causes that would make a positive impact in their neighborhoods. Now the top 200 causes need your help by voting for them to bring money to their communities. From October 26 through November 4, anyone with a valid email address can vote for their favorite cause at www.neighborhoodassist.com to help bring a $25,000 grant to each of the top 40 vote-getters.
Two thousand submissions were received through State Farm Neighborhood Assist, a crowd-sourced philanthropic program that empowers communities to identify issues in their neighborhoods. At least one cause was received from every state. The State Farm Youth Advisory Board, a group of 30 students who are passionate about social responsibility, reviewed the submissions and selected the top 200 finalists based on criteria they created.
The 200 causes have until Nov. 4 to rally votes and anyone voting is allowed up to 10 votes per day. On Nov. 30, the top 40 vote-receiving causes will be announced and a $25,000 grant will be awarded to each of the affiliated nonprofits.
