Foundations That Help Low Income Families in 2017

If you need help and you're on a low income and need to support a big family there are a number of assistance programs for low-income families that you could explore. Your first port of call should be public assistance, the government offers financial assistance programs for people who need money now. These assistance programs sometimes also referred to as online financial assistance come in the form of unemployment benefits, food stamps, rental assistance and energy assistance programs like LIHEAP.

If you're eligible for these programs then that is a great step forward to improve the quality of your life and standard of living. Another option that you could explore is charitable foundations. Whether you're experiencing hardship or want to further your education you could apply for hardships money, scholarships, bursaries, grants, fellowships, internships and even 990's.

Assistance for Low Income Families

One of the best places to go to if you need cash now or online financial assistance is the Foundation Center. This database contains over 100,000 foundations, corporate donors and grantmaking public charities. This site also offers resources on online financial assistance and helps low-income individuals and families find the right foundation to ask for help, they also offer guidance on proposal writing and.

One important point to bear in mind is that these charitable foundations which offer online financial assistance give no guarantees that you'll get money. If you have a qualifying hardship then there is a chance but unfortunately, there are no guarantees. If you're experiencing a genuine hardship like help with medical bills, help with education, financial despair, homelessness, poverty or disaster recovery then there is a good chance you could get help even if it's just advice.
