A Few Words
Our Mission is to boost hope for underprivileged, disadvantaged individuals and communities, by providing support and help in four key areas. Our goal is to empower motivated individuals with the ability to achieve prosperity, but have solvable hurdles currently hindering their potential.
We will achieve this mission by providing one time catalytic grants to partners to help them overcome their ability to get out of poverty and on the road to prosperity. These grants will be for livelihood projects, one-time gap grants for education and skills development, and health related expenses. Gap grants could also be made for low cost housing if justified by the catalytic value towards prosperity.
Another extremely valuable aspect of Boosting Hope’s vision is to create a transparent and collaborative community. One where we see everyone as partners, and hope to learn from each other, to be able to make the most impact we need to understand the reasons which determine the hurdles people face, and how best to facilitate the solution. This will take time and a lot of effort but ultimately we believe that having a growing network of motivated, supportive partners will have the most impact.
the Problems People face
Helping everyday Americans overcome simple healthcare issues to help them prosper.
Supporting small business owners build a profitable and rewarding business.
Supporting those bettering themselves through further education.
Enabling those to secure affordable low cost housing and stability.
How can You Help?
We will be applying for government and institutional grants as our main source of funding, this money will go to the local committees to provide matching grants.
The money will go towards funding grants and therefore partners. The more money and grants we are able to receive on a corporate level allows us to fill any gaps on a local level.
Whilst we have the four main grants we also anticipate a small number of worthwhile situations where a larger grant amount would have an extremely positive impact on both the individual and the local community.
Flexibility and adaptability is the approach we are taking as we grow, because we understand that whilst New Jersey may face more specific challenges in one area this will differ state to state. The intricacies of social issues are complex and we respect we need to learn from the locals.
Organization & Structure
Boosting Hope will operate through local committees, comprising of the people who know & care the most about the area. From experience we know that working on a local level creates the most impact. Each one will comprise of individuals or organisations who will have autonomy to select the local partners receiving the grants. We anticipate approximately 5 members on each committee, with either a chairperson or 2 co-chairs, who will have the deciding vote on distributing funds.
Boosting Hope will be a resource to the local committees, because we are a 501(c)(3) registered charity we have already established the platform to give back. We know that people would like to help and want to do so as well but do not have the experience or time to set up a registered organization.
We are committed to helping committees by primarily removing the administrative burden, a common theme which stops people from pursuing philanthropic endeavours. We will take care of the initial IRS status and tax reporting every year, as well as book keeping and accounting, ensuring compliance to non-profit guidelines.
Operational & fundraising guidance for committees, as well as possible cash contributions on select applicants, dependent on receiving grants, both institutional and governmental, and there are also charitable tax breaks on any donations made. Our resonating message is that this is a partnership which we want to develop in the right way, together and over time.
