Kansas City, Mo. (June 26, 2013) - AMC Theatres is proud to announce its first AMC Cares Charitable Fund Annual Grant process. From now through July 31, interested organizations may apply for a grant that may include cash awards, national onscreen advertising, AMC annual passes, AMC theatre screenings or individual movie passes.
"We developed this annual grant process to help address the many requests for monetary support and other in-kind donations we receive on a daily basis," said Carla Sanders, Vice President, Benefits. "We are specifically aiming to strengthen AMC communities throughout the country with investments in programs that positively impact the areas of arts and culture, health and human services, education and employment."
Applicants should represent qualified nonprofit organizations focused on children's charities.
