The Simple Plan Foundation plans to help needy young people by contributing in the following fields:
- Help the various groups and organisations working with young people facing typical teenage problems: drugs, depression, bullying, school dropping out, suicide, poverty, and those affected by war
- Support various social and medical organizations dedicated to helping ill and handicapped children and youths
- Promote musical training in schools as a way of helping young people develop a passion and find a purpose in life
There is neither a particular form to fill, nor restricting procedure to follow to ask for financial support from the Simple Plan Foundation. Each organization or person is free to explain its objectives and needs in its own way, either by e-mail or by letter.
Of course, the members of the committee who study the different requests need to have enough information to be able to evaluate the credibility of your organization and, also, the relevance of your project compared to our foundation’s mission (cf. www.simpleplanfoundation.com for more details). The committee doesn’t need a long presentation; what matters is to get judicious and precise information about your objectives and activities, showing that your organization shares the same values as the Simple Plan Foundation, and to formulate clearly your request and what you expect.
