Grant Program is open only to organizations determined to be tax exempt by the Internal Revenue Service under Section 501(c)(3) of Title 26 of the United States Code, who’s mission involves work with marginalized communities affected by the war on drugs focusing in on either “education”, “employment” and/or “expungement” (each defined below) (each, a “Qualifying Charity”). Representatives who submit on behalf of a Registered Charity must be authorized representatives of the Qualifying Charity who have authority to bind the Qualifying Charity to these Application Requirements and all other requirements set forth by Grantor. Employees of Green Thumb Industries Inc. (GTI) (“Grantor”), and its subsidiaries, affiliates, promotion and advertising agencies involved in the Grant Program (collectively, the “Grant Program Entities”), and members of their immediate family (spouse and parent, children and siblings and their respective spouses, regardless of where they reside) and persons living in the same household, whether or not related, of such employees, are not eligible to apply in the Grant Program. Grant Program is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws. Void where prohibited by law.
For purposes of this Grant Program, the Three Pillars are as follows:
At Good Green much of our focus and funds will go towards organizations enabling education and career training for individuals and communities directly impacted by the War on Drugs.
Our pillar of Employment is two-fold…
Strive to make sure employment opportunities in the cannabis industry are accessible to the communities most impacted by discriminatory cannabis laws.
Strive to provide a path towards broad and sustainable career opportunities for individuals directly affected by the War on Drugs.
Good Green strongly advocates for clemency towards all non-violent cannabis offenders nationwide. For those granted clemency, it’s our duty to offer resources and criminal justice services to help expunge their records.
