Foundation / Corporation
The Ramsey McCluskey Family Foundation
Grants to Massachusetts nonprofits in the MetroWest Boston/Lincoln area for projects related to general education and arts education, and to develop arts education scholarship programs. Funding is intended to support specific programs or projects that can demonstrate measurable outcomes.
The Foundation has two areas of interest that often coincide.
1. General Education: The Foundation will consider proposals for projects from the Pre-school through high school level. The Foundation is committed to helping students become excited and engaged in learning, whether it is in the school environment, after-school, or in other settings.
2. Arts Education: The Foundation will consider proposals for projects in any area of Pre-school through High School hands-on arts education. The Foundation is particularly interested in projects with sustained contact for students.
Trilogy Grants are three-year grants which award the grantee $7,500 per year for three consecutive years. Only organizations that have received at least two Single Year grant awards from the Foundation are eligible to apply for a Trilogy Grant.
Scholarship Fund Grants: The Foundation will consider a small number of applications each year from arts education non-profits that would like to start or expand Scholarship Funds for their organization. Grants for Scholarship Funds are single year grants of up to $2500. Organizations applying for these funds are expected to have a process in place for identifying children/families who would benefit from financial assistance to participate in the organization's programs. These are NOT scholarship awards for individuals.
