the ceo of my work is giving $1M in grants to "organizations anywhere in the U.S. that serve the critical physical and mental health needs of underserved school children aged 12 and under, provide nutritional assistance, and/or support special education" with an application deadline of FRIDAY.

Please DM me if you know somebody who works somewhere who can apply

If you know anybody who works at a 501(c)(3) org that could use some money right now for helping kids impacted by the pandemic please let me know

@RussSharek unfortunately this requires a decent amount of documentation on their part so i can’t recommend orgs for it, they need to apply
