GMA Foundations - The Fuller Foundation
Grants to New Hampshire and Massachusetts nonprofits in eligible regions for programs and projects in the focus areas of arts, youth at risk, and wildlife protection.

Priorities for each of the Foundation's focus areas are as follows:
Youth at Risk: The Fuller Foundation, seeks proposals from qualified agencies that involve a minimum of twenty-five youth, between the ages of twelve and eighteen, predominately at or below the poverty line, in programs that will:
- Help prevent youth from experiencing the detrimental effects caused by the use of alcohol, tobacco, and drugs through the early education of youth and parents.
- Challenge and empower youth at risk through peer leadership, outdoor adventure education programs, and alternative educational experiences. The Foundation funds programs that help youth reach their potential and lead productive lives. The Foundation favors programs that are year-round, or summer programs that re-enforce values and skills that are learned during the school year.
Wildlife Habitat, Endangered Species and their Environment, and Animals Helping People - Funding will be provided for programs that:
- Educate the public on wildlife and the adverse affects of encroachment on their habitat.
- Support shelters, animal hospitals, animal habitats, and programs that ensure a healthy wildlife population.
- Protect endangered species, their environment, and habitat from extinction or unnecessary human encroachment.
- Support programs, which improve people’s lives by interaction with animals.
The Arts - The Foundation expects its grants to encourage, through the agencies, “hands-on” and participatory collaborations between established cultural institutions, artists and communities. Specific program interests include:
- Art for viewing and listening
- Art education in school
- Art and performing arts festivals Art (murals & sculpture) that beautifies or inspires a community
- Programs that bring symphony, opera, and theater to the community
- Adult and/or children’s museum education programs
