2016 Mentoring Matters Grant Giveaway

At First Niagara, we believe every mentoring relationship has the power to begin an endless chain reaction. It’s one reason why we want to help you share your #MentorStories of success throughout the community. And if our community likes your story, we’ll be able to help a little more: with a grant to spread the organization’s success even further.

First Niagara will award:

  • Grand Prize: $10,000 grant
  • First Runner-up: $4,000 grant
  • Additional Finalists: Six $1,000 grants
  • Eight $500 prizes will be given away, too. That’s one for each person who nominates a winning organization.
