Just One More Foundation announced its first grants on May 18, 2023!
Air Force Staff Sgt. Alfred Perkins III is one of three individual recipients. He applied earlier this year asking for financial support to take a grant writing course. Basically, he wanted a grant to learn how to be a professional grant writer and use those skills to help veterans and people with low incomes.
We set up the call telling him we needed more information for his grant application. Watch to experience this joyous moment Staff Sgt. Perkins learns he is actually one of first grant recipients.
Just One More Foundation is dedicated to giving second chances to people who have a hard-working plan to overcome obstacles. This first round gave grants to 14 non-profit organizations who are serving those working to overcome obstacles such as mental health, education, drug misuse, and health challenges. We also gave grants to two other individuals. You can see the full list of winners here.
Founder Richard Rogers set up the foundation in 2022 because he and his family have been the beneficiaries of second chances and now he wants to use his good fortune to give second chances to others.
Our next round of grant applications opens July 1, 2023.
