The best strategy for requesting money is to visit these foundations one by one to check if there are any programs that could help you. If there are programs that offer help to your hardship you can apply for them. Alternatively you could send a hardship email asking them for urgent cash assistance. On the hardship letter you should explain your present circumstances and how you got into hardship, you then need to request money and explain why you need help, finally end the letter by describing how any donation would be life changing for you.
