What’s in IT for Me?



  1. We want to assure food-insecure individuals, especially children, are fed. We are making available a food stipend for every 500 streams of the What’s in It for Me? podcast. There is no cost for this service.

  2. We want to help teachers, especially those teaching at Title I schools, to acquire the resources that they need in order to provide their students with basic resources without having to spend any more of their own money. We will aid ALL subscribed teachers, regardless of institution type, with acquiring items from donorschoose.org and amazon.com. There is no cost for this service.

  3. We want to aid under-resourced high school students with the transition to adulthood by assisting them with college and career preparation in addition to helping them to maximize free funding opportunities. These opportunities will be made available to students interested in committing to distance mentorship through our virtual student support program. We are seeking donors for this service.

  4. We want to aid the unhoused, especially those with children, in getting permanent housing. This is funded by a $9.99 monthly membership fee paid by the prospective beneficiaries. We are also seeking donors for this service. https://drkennethpiercedotcom.wordpress.com/whats-in-it-for-me/

Frequently asked questions

What is a grant?

A grant is a way the government (or other entity) funds your ideas and projects to provide public services and stimulate the economy.

What is the process of applying to a grant opportunity?

Click here for a complete breakdown of the grant lifecycle.

What do you know about grant writing?

We have written and won grants for years. We have a Facebook group of thousands of nonprofit leaders, many of whom we have supported.

Do you get every grant to which you apply?

No! Grant applications are competitive processes. Even money that must be given away is still most likely to go to the applicant that proves to be the strongest candidate. For more information, click here.

Compared to other grant writers, why are your costs so low?

Simply put, grant-makers (the people and businesses that fund grants) want to make a large impact with the money they have. By charging a lower amount per member, we can attract a larger number of members. The larger our membership base grows, the more attractive we are to grant-makers, the more competitive we are, and the more money you can be awarded. 

What types of things can I get grant funding for?

    • School supplies
    • Education and training
    • New Home
    • New Construction
    • 1st Time Home Buyer
    • Mortgage, Rent, Utilities, and Other Necessities
    • Rental Housing Projects
    • Home Repairs/Renovations
    • Real Estate Taxes
    • Commercial Property
    • Apartment Buildings
    • Land Development
    • RV Parks
    • Mobile Homes / Parks
    • Community Improvement

We will try to apply to everything for which our members are eligible. 

If I do not want or need funding for any of these things listed above, what should I do?

Certainly not this. If you cannot benefit from what we do, please tell someone who can. However, we are unable to offer custom services at this price point. 

What types of guarantees can you offer me?

We guarantee that we will apply for the number of opportunities due you.

We cannot guarantee any dollar amount. If grants were guaranteed money:

  1. They would be called money registrations and getting the money would not require any strategy;
  2. All of us that know how to get grant funding would just continuously apply and ultimately keep all the grant funding available.

While there are no guarantees of funding, we will work hard, and on time, to not waste your time or ours. 

Do I have to pay the grant back?

No. Grants are essentially gifts that do not need to be paid back.

Are you able to help me with a loan?

No. We only deal with grants, sponsorships, and other revenue sources that do not require repayment. 

What do I get for my membership fee?

Parents and guardians are able to utilize our remote weekly academic enrichment platform for their student children. This includes summer enrichment five days each week for six weeks. 

We will use the grant writing process to acquire day-to-day resources for students and their families. 

Local renters and homeowners can expect that we will pursue grants for home purchasing and improvements.

As an organization, we will complete a minimum of four grants each year for interested parties in Winnebago County, Illinois.

Additionally, as a 501(c) (3) tax-exempt organization, your membership fee is tax-deductible

Why do you sell gift cards?

Selling gift cards allows us to service more people in need. For example, a prospective member lacking the available funding to purchase a membership may decide to ask friends to purchase gift cards for which the prospective member can use during the checkout process in order to become a member right away.

How does this mass grant writing service relate to your mission of funding teachers and students, and resilient youth in particular?

In addition to allowing us to give money directly, we believe that any work that we do to improve communities, pay past-due bills, raise property values, etc. contributes positively to the lives of teachers, students, and resilient youth.
