“There were already incredible people doing the work in the midst of this pandemic, and we sought to partner with them to simply bolster their efforts and ensure they could keep helping students,” said Matthews. “We are not only providing them with crisis-relief funding, but we are also introducing their missions to every new donor. We are a short-term project, but we hope that many donors will continue to support their work in the future.”
