Contact: Patricia Tully
The Beacon Hill Civic Association announces that the Beacon Hill Community Fund (“Community Fund”) will now begin to accept grant applications for the funding of small, community-focused projects and programs for 2020. The Community Fund will be accepting grant applications through November 15, 2020.
This Community Fund will be awarding small grants to community-based Beacon Hill, Cambridge Street and adjacent neighborhood non-profit organizations, community development corporations, and other civic groups dedicated to promoting and enhancing quality of life in the community through projects and programs for residents involving the arts and education, youth sports and recreation, day care centers,
playgrounds, activities for seniors and persons with special needs and disabilities, community gardens and spaces, affordable housing, social services, and whatever the Board of Directors of the Beacon Hill Civic Association deems appropriate. Last year, the Community Fund gave out $22,500.00 in grants.
According to Rob Whitney, the Chair of the Beacon Hill Civic Association, “we launched the new Beacon Hill Community Fund grant program last year to award small grants each year to deserving applicants to help finance projects and programs to promote and enhance the quality of life in our Beacon Hill and neighboring communities. In this important program, the Beacon Hill Civic Association will be partnering with residents and neighbors on small civic-minded projects throughout our downtown neighborhoods.”
This year, the total amount of small grants that will be awarded from the Community Fund will be $20,000. The process for applying for a grant from the Community Fund can be found at the Beacon Hill Civic Association website – “bhcivic.org”- at the tab “Community Fund” – as well as the grant application rules and timelines.
