Offer: Pepsi Refresh Project (U.S. residents only)

In 2010, Pepsi will give millions of dollars to fund good ideas, big and small, that make the world a better place. We're looking for people, businesses, and non-profits with ideas that will have a positive impact. Look around your community and think about how you want to change it. What’s a good idea? Who gets a Refresh Grant? You decide.

How it works:
Applications will be accepted from the 1st through the 15th, or until we receive 1,000 ideas, whichever comes first.
Voting on accepted submissions takes place throughout the month. If your idea was not accepted, you can try again starting the 1st of the following month.
Ideas chosen by users to receive grants will be announced at the end of the month. Then the whole process starts over.

Eligibility:
All legal residents of the United States residing in one of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia who are 13 years of age and older.
We are looking for ideas from individuals, non-profits and pro-social businesses that can make a positive impact in the community. Ideas should be feasible and completed 12 months from the date you receive the first funds.

Each month, up to $1.3 million will be awarded as follows: 2 Grants at the $250,000 level; 10 Grants at the $50,000 level; 10 Grants at the $25,000 level; and 10 Grants at the $5,000 level.
