The Waldron Charitable Fund Announces $1M in Grant Opportunities to Support Children
The Waldron Charitable Fund today announced that it will make $1 million in grant funding available to support community organizations serving the critical needs of the nation's underserved children and the 30 million students who receive free and reduced-price meals. As more and more schools nationwide close in response to concerns about the spread of the COVID-19 virus, this initiative will directly fund those who serve critical health needs (both physical and mental), provide nutritional assistance, and support special education for underserved school children.
How to apply/register:
To apply, please email a document no longer than two pages in PDF form to WaldronFund@gmail.com that addresses the following:
- Briefly describe the 501(c)(3) organization.
- What problem are you working to solve?
- How many underserved children will be positively impacted by your efforts?
- How will you distribute your solution while keeping children safe during the COVID-19 crisis?
- How quickly can your service be provided?
Applicants must represent 501(c)(3) organizations, and faith-based organizations are eligible to apply. Because of government procurement rules for K–12 curriculum companies, organizations directly affiliated with a school—such as a parent–teacher organization (PTO) or a local school foundation—are ineligible
Organizations must include a copy of their most recent IRS Form 990 and annual report, if one exists. A duplicate copy should be mailed to Rob Waldron at Curriculum Associates, 153 Rangeway Road, North Billerica, MA 01862.
