Grants ranging from $500 to $3,000 to Massachusetts and Vermont nonprofits for programs that strive to enhance the lives of the residents of North Adams, as well as the neighboring communities of Florida and Clarksburg, Massachusetts, and Stamford, Vermont. Eligible programs may focus on any community needs, such as historic preservation, culture, arts, human and social services, health, education, and the environment.

While the Hardman Fund typically supports a wide range of projects, the fund’s grantmaking committee has prioritized projects that meet basic or emergency needs—including food pantry, health insurance counseling and victim assistance services—and organizations that are the sole providers of vital services for vulnerable populations in the region. Preference is given to collaboration between organizations, particularly those providing food to people in need.

Grants will be awarded to organizations that demonstrate the potential to expand or deepen their impact, or to those that are already achieving a significant impact. The Fund is particularly interested in initiatives that take a long-term view of what is required to support people in difficult economic circumstances and to assist them in moving out of poverty and those that enrich the cultural and natural environment of the Fund area.
