Americans looking to “Pay It Forward” with their stimulus checks can donate directly to families in 41 states facing a medical crisis and help them pay their bills at and have 100% of their donation go directly to help a family

ST. PAUL, MN, April 17, 2020 /Neptune100/ — This week, millions of Americans will begin receiving “Economic Impact Payments” or Stimulus Checks from the federal government.

These funds are intended to help Americans who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

For those Americans who don’t need the money a Minnesota based non-profit, Spare Key,, is asking them to consider donating directly to families facing a medical crisis.

Spare Key’s platform is 100% free for families facing a significant medical crisis, including COVID-19, to help them avoid adding a financial crisis to their lives.

Donors can be assured that 100% of their funds will go directly to cover expenses that families have identified they need assistance with because Spare Key sends any funds raised for that family directly to the servicer.

Currently families are seeking financial support to help with their mortgage, rent, car payments, insurance or medical bills, funeral expenses and other bills on

Spare Key is NOT raising money for itself during these challenging economic times. More than a month ago as the COVID-19 crisis began to escalate, the organization made the decision not to fundraise for itself.

Instead it has focused its efforts on supporting families directly impacted by COVID-19, as well as other critical illnesses and injuries.

All funds raised on the platform goes directly to that family’s specific need – Spare Key receives nothing from family donations.

There are a growing number of Americans posting on social media asking where they can use their economic stimulus funds if they do not need them.

Spare Key is asking those fortunate Americans who are in a position to “pay it forward” with their Economic Impact Payment or stimulus check to think about helping a family directly by going to and finding a family to support.

Spare Key is a 501 (C)(3) non-profit, 41-1888767, that was founded in 1997. It provides financial assistance and support to families facing a critical illness or serious injury through its platform. Currently operating in 41 states, Spare Key’s platform is a way for donors to donate directly to a family facing a medical crisis and help them cover bills that can help them avoid adding a financial crisis to their lives.
