The Waldron Charitable Fund Announces $1M in Grant Opportunities to Support Children

Opportunity

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:

  1. Briefly describe the 501(c)(3) organization.
  2. What problem are you working to solve?
  3. How many underserved children will be positively impacted by your efforts?
  4. How will you distribute your solution while keeping children safe during the COVID-19 crisis?
  5. 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.
