Herren Project is a national nonprofit organization established by former professional basketball player Chris Herren to prevent substance use disorder. Toward its mission, the organization offers grants for safe, substance-free events to help schools and communities celebrate prom and graduation. Grants ranging from $500 to $2,000 are intended to help cover costs of after-prom and after-graduation parties that encourage healthy choices and inspire substance-free fun.
Grants are open to any high school or preparatory school in the United States. To be eligible for a grant, applicants need to submit an overview of their after-prom or graduation event, including the theme, plans for promotion, and a detailed budget.
Deadlines: Applications are due by 5 p.m. (ET) on March 18, 2022; recipients will be notified by March 25, 2022.
