Matched with:

CHERYLL-ANN W.

This project will save us $3,750, allowing us to jump start the grant process.

What We Need

  • Grant Template outlining the Organization’s mission, strategic plan, activities and budget
  • Tips and suggestions on customizing Grant Template for specific grants

Nice To Have

We would like the volunteer to have professional experience with writing grants.

How This Will Help

We are in the process of applying for a number of program grants to cover the cost of our one day events around the state. We are applying to foundations, banks and corporate social responsibility grants. We want to be able to put our "best foot forward" to help us maximize the possibility of securing future funds.

What We Have In Place

We currently have a program budget and description which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a mission state for the organization and the ability to provide any other information you need.

Fun Fact

Over the last year we have had a variety of animals attend our hackathons, from the normal (a puppy) to the more exotic (an owl).

Our Mission

The mission of Random Hacks of Kindness Junior, Inc. (RHoKJr) is to empower students to use technology to positively impact the challenges facing local nonprofits in their communities. We do this by hosting one-day hackathons around the state where 4th-8th grader are paired with computer science mentors and nonprofit representatives to develop prototype smartphone apps for local charities. Using an MIT developed coding tool students will learn the basics of app design, as well as the ideation and brainstorming process required to build a successful prototype mobile application. All students regardless of their computing background are welcome.
