An amazing way to lend a helping hand to those in need is to try and support the entire community, and in turn get support from that community. By creating infrastructure that facilitates the support systems that the community actually needs, then you can work with the people who need help to make a solution that is tailor-made for the problems, people are facing. These community support systems could help to educate children, organize community meal programs, and many other positive community-building activities.
One of the oldest ways that people have been coming together to help one another is through organized religion. There are many different religions that exist now, and even more that have existed throughout the course of history. Some people are brought up in religions because their family practiced a certain religion, but increasing numbers of individuals are choosing to switch their religions. This may be due to the fact that there is now a website with information for every major religion, which allows individuals to learn about religions that they might not have been exposed to otherwise. Each religion has its own way of creating positive change in its community, so it is up to you to speak with your local religious leader to find out what they do to make a difference.
It is common knowledge that almost all public schools are underfunded and lack the necessary resources to give each child everything they need to be successful.

The most effective way to use grant money in order to make a difference would be to fund some of the aforementioned institution, such as school and community support systems.

This can be a great people who are interested in philathropism to give support directly to the communities or people that they think will benefit most. If you are not a wealthy benefactor then you can still make a difference by donating to an organiation that needs your help.
