If you are a nonprofit or news organization and do not see the prompt in your ActionSprout account, check the page settings in your ActionSprout account dashboard to make sure your Facebook page is categorized correctly.  

You will need to explicitly list one of the categories above as one of your page's categories. (You can have several): 

If that's not the case please navigate your your Facebook page, click Settings, then Page Info in the left hand menu. Then find Categories in the middle of the screen.   

Accounts are automatically upgraded and our team will review applications in the order they are received and we will contact applicants only if additional information is needed. 

We will periodically review grantee's Facebook Page activity and we reserve the right to rescind grants for any reason, including but not limited to:

  • Engagement in illegal activity
  • Promoting violent, abusive, or threatening behavior
  • Impersonating others or engaging in misleading activity

If your ActionSprout account is currently on a paid plan, you will need to first deactivate your account by going to the billing area under account settings and hitting deactivate. Then you will see the grant application prompt at the top of that page and you can apply and upgrade.
