The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation announced today it is giving $10 million in grants to a dozen civil and voting rights advocacy groups.
Each of the 12 groups is working to ensure eligible Americans can vote and participate in the democratic process, with a focus on Georgia and the Southeast.
The money is the first of a set of grants from the foundation’s Democracy portfolio. In addition to democracy, the foundation is focusing on the environment and youth development.
