My organization will be called (taking back our community). The reason why I want to do this is to get kids off the street. Every time I wake up in the morning and I turn on the TV news there is always a young child getting killed by gunfire. I would love my community to come together in   Buffalo New York, daycares and two other things that we used to do when we were younger like double dutching competition dance and music and competitions, sewing classes in design school in PS4 complications ,a basketball League.  Please help I do not want kids to be another victim of being in special education because I was and I still have trouble at times so I'm trying. We can't keep losing lives!! Help make our community great again!!

- Check your state web site! States give out a lot of grants and often want to encourage preservation of important sites and activities for families and kids. You could have a winner here! Look for a section about Grants and if you dont see one use the site's search function and enter the term Grants.

- If you are  nonprofit that's an official 501c3  you will find a lot more grant opportunities are available both at the local and federal level. If you're not then you might look for one in your area that shares your vision and see if they would like to partner with you on the project.

- This could also be a good project to attract attention on crowdfunding sites like gofundme. If the public likes the idea they might be willing to pitch in to make it happen. Learn more about gofundme and a few other crowfunding sites in this article about findng "free money".
