The ALO Foundation Grant Awards for COVID-19 Heroes is a national accolade that helps individuals receive emergency support, or if designated, provide a grant to a charity of choice in the United States.

Established as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ALO Foundation will honor a minimum of 10 outstanding individuals who made a significant and positive difference to people and the environment. By January 2021, three nominated winners will each receive up to $10,000 in grants.

♦♦ Nomination is Free but we welcome your donation to help raise funds to support COVID-19 victims and relief efforts.
