Grants ranging from $1,000 to $15,000 to New Hampshire nonprofit organizations, schools, and government agencies in eligible communities for services that benefit local residents. Funding is intended to support programs in areas such as health care, affordable housing, arts and humanities, social services, human services, and services that address the needs of children, adolescents, elders and single parent families.
The areas served by the Fund currently include Alexandria, Belmont, Boscawen, Bristol, Franklin, Gilford, Gilmanton, Hill, Laconia, Merrimack, New Hampton, Northfield, Sanbornton, and Tilton. The Fund may also provide support for projects in other surrounding communities.
The Franklin Savings Bank Fund for Community Advancement provides support for substantial projects that will significantly enhance the lives of people in the communities that make up the primary market area of the bank. The Fund is very active in supporting a broad range of community activities.
Priority consideration will be given to those programs and services that address the needs of low to moderate income families and individuals.
