About Us

You have ideas. We have ways to make them happen. Let’s do this! 

A Community Thrives is a grantmaking and crowdfunding program from the USA TODAY NETWORK, which includes USA TODAY and Gannett’s hundreds of local media brands.

Supported by the Gannett Foundation, the program offers an opportunity for you to share your great ideas for how to improve your community. We provide a national platform, a way to get your neighbors, friends, family, and peers excited to support your ideas, and most importantly a chance at $2,000,000 in grants to get them off the ground running.
