Lyft Expands Wheels For All Grants Program To Continue Supporting Local Nonprofits

Posted By on August 6, 2019

Lyft has announced the expansion of its Wheels for All Grants program to support the important work of Valley non-profit organizations focused on building connected, stronger, more equitable communities.

Starting in Sept. 2019, Lyft in Phoenix and 40 other cities nationwide will award ride grants to nonprofits on a quarterly basis to help bridge transportation gaps for individuals and families.

Wheels for All Grants was developed in 2018 to help Lyft identify and connect with some of the Valley’s area’s hardest working organizations. Phoenix has been a part of the Wheels for All Grants program since 2018 and has awarded grants to organizations like the International Rescue Committee, one*n*10 and The MORE Foundation to help ease transportation barriers. 

Nonprofits will be awarded Wheels for All Grants on a quarterly basis, with recipients determined by a local committee made up of Lyft employees and representatives from the Driver Advisory Council. Any 501(c)3 organization that operates in greater Phoenix is eligible to apply for a grant.

“We’re proud to be able to offer this opportunity to non-profit organizations who are already making a positive impact on communities in the greater Phoenix,” said Drena Kusari, regional director, Lyft’s Southwest region. “There’s a lot of great work being done, and Lyft is grateful to provide an opportunity for organizations who want to take their meaningful efforts even further.”
