Give Help/Get Help


The Still Kickin non-profit organization exists to provide economic relief to people who are going through challenging times. We're able to do this with the generosity of individuals and organizations who want to #HelpAHumanOut, as well as the Still Kickin benefit corporation, which donates a portion of its proceeds to the non-profit. 


NEED HELP?

We're here for you.

If you or someone you know is in need of financial support during a difficult time, our nonprofit is here to help.


You can apply for or nominate someone for our monthly Hero grant or one of our smaller, on-demand grants for more immediate needs. All applications and nominations are reviewed by the nonprofit organization and Hero Committee. 


We've also curated additional resources that we’ve found can be helpful during hard times.

WANT TO HELP?

Thanks for helping us #HelpAHumanOut.

Thank you for being the kind of person who supports awesome people going through awful things! We can always use more people in our community who give a dang about others. 


The best ways to help are by donating to our nonprofit — either on a one-time basis or by becoming a Still Kickin Sidekick (what we call our monthly donors). You can also volunteer with us. And we’re always open to new ideas on ways to collaborate with other businesses!

WHO YOU HELP

Most Americans don’t have access to emergency funds when things go bad, and the past few months have illuminated just how close to the edge many of us are living. In the past few weeks, we’ve given out 11 grants totaling $5,500 to folks who:  


- Lost their income due to COVID-19


 - Are dealing with the death of a loved one amidst the pandemic 


- Were already going through a crappy time (recently widowed, major illness, etc.) before the economy took a nosedive 


- Are struggling to keep their small business alive 


- Are independently funding ways to help their students cope at home


And we continue to fundraise to help more people. Are you struggling due to COVID-19? Apply today for a grant.
