Is your lemonade stand turning into the next big thing for a good cause?
Are people requesting receipts? Do you want to go after grant money?
Have you won a monetary award that must go to a 501C3?
Welcome to our non-profit umbrella.
This is for the kids who want to go bigger with their problem-solving ideas!
Mark Rinkel is a great example. He met our 15 year-old CEO at the Prudential Spirit of Community National Awards. He received thousands of dollars as an award for his home-grown project to train seizure alert dogs for diabetics. His problem: He had to donate this big award to a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. He couldn't use any of that money to further his efforts. Until he met Talia. His "Red Alert Dogs" project fits perfectly within RandomKid's mission to help kids help others. So now Red Alert Dogs is officially a RandomKid project, and Mark is now eligible for many more grants and awards because of it.
To be eligible to come under RandomKid's 501C3, you will need to fill out a short form describing your project, and agree to the following:
1. That the grant funds will only be used for charitable or educational purposes
2. That you will submit an annual report for how the funds you received were used
3. That you will keep a record of expenditures, and save all receipts
4. That you will place 10% of all funds raised into a community seed fund pool that you can access to grow your own efforts, along with others. We created this fund so that you, and other random youth we serve, would have the capital and support you need to expand your projects.
You will need to fill out these two forms:
