Grant Writer Request #07282020A

  
Primary Purpose:
Our organization needs grants to help support our Youth Programs. Programs for life. Includes Fit/Wellness/Culture/Skills for LIFE. We know that our youth need mental health care more than ever with these uncertain times. The primary purpose is to seek a grant writer that understands the needs of our youth.
Programming and Dollar Needs:
Our 501c3 is looking for $100,000 to open up space that provides ONE on ONE programs to our YOUTH. Some of our programs will give our kids skills for life, which is their education needs; Fit for life - which will show them how important exercise is, Wellness for life - to help still the mind and have alternative options besides medications, and Culture for life - which is art therapy and so much more.
Project Description:
Provide your hourly rate for research and locating grants for: 5 hours per week for 5 weeks.   For a total of 25 hours.
I have been an owner of a successful business for over 25 years. Throughout my life, I have helped many kids find their purpose. All the alternative and unique approach within these programs have worked. Our youth have become healthy and beautiful adults, living a good life, when they have done many of these "alternatives". I need help in putting all the years of testimonials into writing/grants and having the outside donors support this incredible program. I need help.
Provide your hourly rate for writing curriculum for: 2 hours per week for 2 weeks.   For a total of 4 hours.
Not too sure about the curriculum but I know that I need help in understanding grants and would love to work with someone who can help. Someone who will understand and "download" what programs/opportunities I have been given to our youth for years.
Provide your hourly rate to set up and manage my YouHelp page: 4 hours per week for 4 weeks.   For a total of 16 hours.
This will be my first time working with anyone on grant writing, so I am open to learn and see what is out there. This is a very important part of my life, and I know that with the right funding, I and the tribe of people who are with me, on this journey will be able to assist our troubled and broken youth. We also believe in PREVENTION. We continue to PREVENT our youth from addictions, suicide, and other mental health issues.
