The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation has announced grants totaling $4.1 million to eighty-eight nonprofits serving communities across the state.
The general operating support grants were awarded through the foundation's Community Grants Program, which provides funding to nonprofits in the areas of health and well-being, civic engagement, education, economic development, environmental protection, and arts and culture. Recipients include Five Rivers Conservation Trust in Concord ($60,000); Girls Inc. of New Hampshire in Manchester ($60,000); Green Mountain Conservation Group in Effingham ($60,000); Monadnock Area Peer Support Agency in Keene ($30,000); Mountain Top Music Center in Conway ($48,000); and Turning Points Network in Claremont ($60,000).
"Nonprofits do critical work in every community in our region — in times of crisis, and always," said NHCF director of grantmaking Anne Phillips. "Many of them have been on the front lines during the public health crisis, and many have adapted and innovated in amazing ways to continue meeting their missions for our communities. The foundation is proud to partner with and support these organizations that make New Hampshire a better place for everyone."
