USA WEEKEND and Newman’s Own honor the efforts
of outstanding people who lead Make a Difference Day projects. Each year, we award $140,000 total in grants to fourteen honorees chosen by our distinguished panel of judges. Award-winners can use their grant money to expand their Make a Difference Day projects, or donate them to a charity of their choice.
