Humanity Forward X The $1K Project

$1,000 A MONTH FOR THREE MONTHS

Humanity Forward Foundation x The $1k Project connect families financially affected by the pandemic with sponsors who are willing to help them - directly

Sponsor A FamilyGet Nomination Form

Text 815-393-1070 to contribute to the sponsorship of a family in need.

Because your contribution goes directly to a family in need, it is not considered tax-deductible.

For a limited time, every $1 contributed to Humanity Forward Foundation x The $1k Project will be matched by Humanity Forward Foundation. So, if you decide to donate $50, that will count as $100 towards the sponsorship of a family in need. If you commit to sponsoring one family, we'll sponsor another!

How The HFF x $1K Project Works

The $1k Project uses verified connections to match families in need with sponsors who commit to giving them $1,000 a month for 3 months as a bridge to new employment or other support. Here's how it works --

  1. Families in need can request a nomination from their current or former employer. Our team reviews the nominations and then provides an application link for the family.

  2. Families use the link to provide basic information about their situation that aids us in matching them with a committed sponsor via a private GoFundMe campaign page.

  3. Our team includes the verified nomination source on the GoFundMe campaign page to share with the potential sponsors.

  4. Once a sponsor confirms the match, they fund the family $1,000 for each of the next 3 months through the private GoFundMe page.

  5. Only once a family is approved, matched, and funded does our team reach out to notify the family and assist them with claiming the funds.

Anyone can help sponsor a family - whether you can donate $50 or $10,000. To commit to fully sponsoring a family, click here. If you're able to contribute at a lower level, text 815-393-1070. Either way, Humanity Forward Foundation will match your contribution.

Humanity Forward Foundation x The $1k Project provides complete transparency for sponsors to see that their full contribution goes to the family. Our team will make sure to inform sponsors once their contribution has reached the family.

We don’t guarantee funding or provide application status updates. For more information on how The $1k Project works visit 1kproject.org/faq.

Are you an individual adversely impacted by the pandemic and seeking financial assistance?

Three ways to support a family in need

Because your contribution goes directly to a family in need, it is not considered tax-deductible.

SPONSOR A FAMILY DIRECTLY

Commit to $1k a month for 3 months and support a family directly. To sign up, please fill out the sponsor form. We will get back to you with a proposed family match.

TEXT 815-393-1070 TO SPONSOR AS A GROUP

To get involved at a lower commitment level, text 815-393-1070 with the amount you'd like to donate ($50 minimum). We’ll text you back with a link to a specific family’s GoFundMe page where you can read their story and donate directly through the page. Every $1 you donate will be matched by Humanity Forward Foundation, so the family will receive $100 for every $50 donated!
