Sparklight today announced it will award $15,000 to non-profit organizations in the communities it serves as part of the internet service provider’s “Up for Any Challenge” social media campaign.

Non-profit organizations in communities throughout the 21 states Sparklight serves can enter to win simply by sharing a photo and written entry outlining how their organization has been impacted by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, how the winning funds will be used, and how funds will benefit the community. Three organizations will be selected to each receive a $5,000 donation.

“We know many non-profit organizations have seen a decrease in both donations and volunteers as a result of COVID-19, but the need these organizations fill is now greater than ever,” said Trish Niemann, Sparklight’s Senior Director of Corporate Communications. “We want to help organizations serving a vital role in our communities get through these difficult times and demonstrate that together we can make a lasting impact on the communities we serve.”

Entries will be accepted from July 20 through Aug. 11 at Winning organizations will be highlighted on Sparklight’s social media channels, including Facebook and Instagram.
