Single parent households raising at least one child, and must meet the guidelines for financial need. This grant is specifically for low and moderate-income families. Priority will be given to families with a household income under $25,000 (for a family of four) although in special circumstances families with higher income will be considered. There will be a cut off based on the Federal Government guidelines for low income:
Priority will be given to families not currently receiving funding and those who are most in need. We may not be able to meet all requests. Please do not apply if your family income exceeds the above guidelines.
Fisher’s Family Grants are up to $500.
You may apply to use the money for anything that improves the life of your child or children being raised in a home with one parent.
MONEY WILL NOT GO DIRECTLY TO FAMILY. An invoice or bill must be sent to the foundation upon approval. The Fisher DeBerry Foundation will send payment directly to supplier for the agreed upon goods or services.
We also request that you send a note of thanks explaining how the funds were helpful to you. These notes are very important for us to let the foundation and donors know how beneficial these funds are to families. We will black out any names in your note to protect your privacy if we share your letter.
