For Grant Recipients:

If you were a recipient of a Neighbors in Need (NIN) grant, help us inform our members whose contributions to NIN have made your grant possible about how lives have been transformed because of their generosity. Access the reporting form.

These stories may be shared in a variety of forms as we promote inspired giving to NIN. View previous grant recipients.
