The connection is made after a “grant seeker” submits a “writer request.” The request acts as a job requisition and is shared with our team of grant writers. Grant writers then bid on the project in hopes of becoming the writer of that grant application.

Why A YouHelp Fundraiser?

Providing up to date service is crucial for client retention. Crowdfunding has taken the world by storm as a very effective & powerful tool for raising money and awarness.

Including a YouHelp description is also a great way to show concern for the client’s financial well being while they are in the process of applying for grant funding.

Due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus crisis many organizations had to cease standard operations. This includes events and other means of fundraising.

Many have turned to grant funding or loans as supplemental revenue, while others have tapped into crowdfunding to keep their vessel afloat.

It’s a “sink or swim” day in age as we face the limitations of shutdowns and social distancing. The internet has gone from the modern day market place to the only place as fear of contracting a potentially deadly virus also spreads.

YouHelp has proven to be a valuable resource in these trying times. Businesses such as Propaganda Lake Worth have utilized YouHelp to collect almost $14,000 in donations. Matt Krug, the owner of Propaganda, stated that “Despite receiving a loan from the government, reopening after the shutdown wouldn’t even be possible if it wasn’t for YouHelp.”

Grant Writers have taken note of the power of crowdfunding as they encourage all grant seekers to create a YouHelp fundraiser.
