Grant Description
Grants of up to $25,000 to New Hampshire nonprofit organizations and public agencies in eligible locations for programs and services that improve the quality of life of local residents. Funding is intended to support a wide range of projects in the areas of education, environment, culture, arts, history, and social services. Applicants must be located in the funding source's service area.

Over the years, the Fund has supported literacy programs, after-school programs, environmental monitoring as well as education and restoration of historic structures, organizations that provide support for individuals and families in challenging circumstances, and equipment that helps save lives. While not focused on a particular category, Fund administrators are mindful of the receiving organization and its contribution to the quality of life in the communities served.
