Local nonprofits awarded grants

The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation has made $3.180 million in grants through its Community Grants Program to support the operations of 68 nonprofits serving New Hampshire communities.

Grants will help increase opportunities for young people, provide access to fresh and healthy foods, connect people through the arts, strengthen families, boost our economy, protect our natural resources, build affordable homes for families, keep our communities healthy – and much more.

“New Hampshire’s nonprofits are at the heart of civil society, tending to our most pressing needs, caring for the most vulnerable among us,” said Anne Phillips, director of grantmaking at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.

In 2017, the Foundation announced that its Community Grants program, through which qualified nonprofit organizations apply for funding, would be dedicated primarily to providing multiyear operating support starting in 2018. Grants are distributed over three years unless otherwise noted.

“Nonprofits really do know best what they need, and are best-positioned to decide where and how to deploy capital to meet their missions,” said Phillips. “And because these grants are made for multiyear support, nonprofits will be able to spend less time and resources on re-applying for funding and focus more time on mission.”

The Charitable Foundation awards almost $40 million in grants each year. The Foundation administers multiple grant programs – some focused on specific regions, populations and issue areas – and also makes grants through donor-advised funds.

The Foundation’s Community Grants program is a competitive application program open to all qualified nonprofits that serve New Hampshire in the areas of health and well-being, civic engagement, education, economic development, environmental protection and arts and culture.
