Crucial Grants for Nonprofit Organizations

WPTV News: Keeping certain programs going during the COVID-19 pandemic is crucial for a non-profit organization, especially when the need is greater.

The colors of the LGBTQ flag waved vibrantly outside the Compass Community Center in Lake Worth on Friday. The center's doors are still open for everyone, but a lot has changed during the pandemic.

"We’re paying for things like a Zoom subscription. All of our therapy sessions are now happening virtually that way," said Claudia Harrison, the chief communications officer at the Compass Community Center.

The center offers a variety of activities and programs for LGBTQ youth, and for the past two years, grants have kept one vital program going. "We found them through GrantWatch back in 2019, and the funding we receive from them is a crucial part of our youth mental wellness program that allows us to offer mental health therapy to youth clients free of cost to them," Harrison said.

On GrantWatch's website, there are grants for businesses, non-profits, and individuals. This year, the website is seeing a 44% increase in available grants compared to the same time last year.

"I think the needs is greater and the people that give grants are realizing that the need is greater," said Libby Hikind, the founder and CEO of GrantWatch. "We see that the foundations that were only funding non-profits are now funding businesses and individuals." Hikind said the pandemic has caused more grants to become available for tourism, clinical research, and mental health.

Compass just applied for a $25,000 grant to continue funding its youth mental wellness services. "Without grants, we wouldn’t be able to do a lot of what we do here," Harrison said.




Florida Businesses Improve Despite Travel Restriction Talks

CBS 12 NEWS: Florida is fiercely fighting back against any chance of the federal government imposing travel restrictions. That comes after the uproar from Florida Republicans, reacting to reporting from the Miami Herald that said the White House was considering travel restrictions on numerous states in order to clamp down on the spread of the U.K. variant of COVID-19, a hyper-infectious strain of the virus officially known as B117 that's spreading through Florida faster than any other state. The u.k. strain is in 34 states, including Florida which has seen a nearly 50% increase on Sunday alone.

Meanwhile, Florida's wide open, tourist-driven economy is improving, but still sputtering. Unemployment is up dramatically, and Libby Hikind, CEO of GrantWatch.com, says many businesses aren't out of the woods yet and can't afford another hit. "They want to keep their employees paid, and they want to keep their doors open. And every time they think it's going to end, it doesn't."

Grantwatch.com Announces New Category, SOCIAL JUSTICE

Social Justice Grants are now easier to identify and apply


GrantWatch.com Announces New Category, SOCIAL JUSTICE



Social Justice Grants are now easier to identify and apply



BOYNTON BEACH, Fla., June 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- For most nonprofit organizations, grants are the single most important financial resource. Getting a grant could make or break the success of many of these community serving organizations. 

Libby Hikind

With social justice issues exploding in America, GrantWatch.com felt it was the right time to address this topic and create a path for nonprofit business and individuals working towards social justice. 

The new social justice category includes grants specifically for: nonprofits, small businesses, municipalities, tribal organizations and community-based and faith-based organizations who focus on social justice, racial equality, economic justice, human rights and social change.  

These currently available grants in the social justice category are for providing services  for individuals, nonprofits, businesses, communities of color and other populations, cultures and religions that have been affected by racial injustice, prejudice and discrimination based upon their age, disability, ethnicity, gender, marital status, national origin, race, religion, and sexual orientation.

"Our goal has always been to help nonprofit organizations secure grants but now, with this new category, we are making it easier to identify grantors with open funding applications for social justice causes," Founder and CEO Libby Hikind said. "Right now, we have 188 grants in the category and that number keeps growing," Hikind added. 

Libby continued, "We are ready, willing and able to accept many more social justice and other grant listings on GrantWatch.com.

Working together with both the funding source (government, foundations, corporations and philanthropists) and the community grant seeking organizations in need of funding to provide services to bring about social justice, we can change the world!"
