Earn $1,000 To Do Something Awesome For Your Family

This initiative is brought to you by Fatherly and the United Nations Foundation.

Assuming you didn’t win the Powerball, there’s a better, more attainable way of getting the resources to fulfill a dream. The January Fatherly Fund provides a $1,000 grant to help some deserving parents bring a meaningful project to life — one that involves your children, not your buddies who launched a Kickstarter to build the world’s smartest kegerator.

A quick example is Ryan Nelson, a previous winner, who built a wheelchair accessible swing set for his daughter with Spinal Muscular Atrophy:

The winning entry should have a pre-planned project in mind with a clear, impactful goal. Whether it’s building a skate ramp playhouse or taking the whole family on a much-needed vacation, Fatherly and the United Nations Foundation want to give you a hand, and a hand up.

    I'm not sure yet. It depends on how things progress.
Thanks for the feedback!
