Sprint (NYSE: S) recently announced the 2012 recipients of its Atlanta Local Giving Program. In total, three area non-profit organizations were awarded grants as part of this signature community-support program. The Atlanta Local Giving Program awards Sprint Foundation grants totaling $50,000 to area non-profits that support Sprint’s philanthropic focus areas of youth development (including mentoring, leadership and academic achievement), arts and culture, and environmental stewardship. Grants were presented and recipient organizations were honored at a local reception last night.

The 2012 grant recipients are as follows:

  • Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta was awarded a $25,000 Sprint Foundation grant for its Leadership Experience Outreach Program. This funding will help underwrite the costs of participation for 5,000 girls from low-income households to participate in Girl Scouting. These girls will work toward proficiency badges in areas such as financial literacy, STEM educational initiatives and career exploration.
  • The Atlanta Botanical Garden was awarded a $15,000 Sprint Foundation grant for its Education and the Environment Program. This funding will be used to engage 14,000 students from the Atlanta Public School system in a variety of educational programs, including after-school activities, classroom-garden taste tests, field trips, a science-outreach program, and a student wellness-ambassador program.
  • Horizon Theatre Company was awarded a $10,000 Sprint Foundation grant for its Education Outreach Program. Each year, this program enables more than 6,500 people of all ages to attend or participate in productions, readings and workshops through a Family Series, Young Playwrights Festival, Apprentice Company and Intern Company.

Sprint is a long-time supporter of the Atlanta community, and this is the fourth year Sprint has conducted the Atlanta Local Giving Program. In total, through this and similar programs, Sprint has provided more than $220,000 in support to Atlanta-area non-profits, including Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta and GivingPoint Inc.
