Grants valuing from anywhere from twenty five hundred to ten thousand dollars will be awarded to organizations which must show that they are benefiting children at need, but the number is insignificant so long as the applicants demonstrate beneficial outcomes.

Funds will go mostly to nonprofits, but others do have the opportunity to apply.
