Grants to Massachusetts nonprofits for projects that will benefit local communities. Funding will be awarded to programs in the areas of social welfare, historic preservation, visual arts, medicine (human and animal), and land conservation. Preference will be given to projects where a large area or number of people will benefit.

Grants will be made exclusively for capital projects and capital purchases.

The Board favors supporting well-managed organizations with good oversight and relatively low administration and other overhead expenses. An organization's financial statement and condition are important considerations. The Board also looks favorably on organizations that can secure funding from multiple sources.
