Grants typically ranging from $5,000 to $7,500 to New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Maine nonprofits in eligible regions for programs and projects in the focus areas of arts, youth at risk, and wildlife protection. For the arts and youth at risk categories, programs must be located in the Boston area (inside 128) or the immediate Seacoast area of New Hampshire. For the wildlife category, grant seekers must have an office or chapter in the state of Maine, New Hampshire, or Massachusetts.
The Fuller Foundation's focus areas include the following Areas of Interest:
- Programs that provide access to art, and art education, to traditionally underserved communities
- Efforts that beautify and inspire communities, including local arts festivals
- Programs involving symphony, opera, or theater

- Animals Helping People: Horses, dogs, monkeys, and certain wildlife species interactions that better human lives

Youth at Risk:
The Foundation funds programs that help children and teens reach their potential and lead productive lives.

The Foundation favors programs that are year-round, or to summer programs which re-enforce values and skills that are learned during the school year.
- Peer leadership, outdoor adventure education
- Alternative educational experiences
- Educational programs to prevent alcohol, tobacco and drug abuse
