Hello, my name is Tom and I am looking for a monetary grant to start a not for profit organization geared at helping as many people as I possibly can and to become a pillar in my community.
Please continue reading about the organization I would like to startÖ
I live in a community where the economy is not the greatest and a lot of people donít get the opportunity to do what people with money do and further there is no place for certain people to have equality in their way of life. I want to fix that.
First, I want to obtain a church complex that is for sale right now. I want to establish a wedding chapel where people who canít afford conventional weddings can come in and get a respectful wedding any day of the week. I would also like to give same sex couples the opportunity to have a sophisticated commitment ceremony with the option of making it legal when Ohio passes the law.
Second, I want to add a portrait studio. For the last few years I have been taking senior pictures for high school seniors who have little money to buy them. Many kids get pictures where their parent pay more than a thousand dollars for the package. Well a lot of kids donít have that opportunity so I will offer senior pics to kids in need at our cost. I will also utilize the studio to take pics of the special days of the people coming in to get married. A cute pictue plus a beautiful certificate will help the same sex couples make their commitment day complete. This portrait studio in itself will help people more than you know. These people will appreciate it more than anything.
Third, I want to use tee-shirt imprinting equipment to offer fundraisers for local churches and schools. Right now a couple schools in the area are on a pay to play basis because of lack of funds. This means that only kids who can pay the fees can play sports, be in clubs, etc. This to me is unacceptable and this organization will make sure that the poor kids have the same opportunity as others.
Finally, because the complex I want to aquire is 7 acres. I want to have summer camps two or three times a summer. And gear these camps to troubled teenagers, ones that are bullied and others that are disabled, both mentally and physically. We will bring in speakers, ministers and therapist to work with these kids so that we can stop the bad things before they happen. Just two days ago, and I swear this is true, a 13 year old boy at the school my daughters attend hung himself. Why? Because he couldnít stand being bullied anymore. We need to work with these kids and let them know the array of options that are out there for them.
I will also let you know that I am an ordained minister licensed to perform ceremonies in Ohio and I have been taking senior school pictures for years. So, I know these industries and even though we wont try to make a profit, I am certain that the money will be well used and we will have no issue staying open to help people.
I need $500,000. I know that sounds like a lot but, I would be ok with you giving anything you can and If I can get a several people to give some I may be able to get this off the ground.
Finally, I would like to say that I would be more than willing to sign a legal document that states that you donated this money and you have the right to write if off on your taxes and that I gaurentee that I am using the money for nothing but the causes listed above and that you have the right to check it out any time at random.
