Holliston Newcomers 2019 Grant Application Period Is Now Open

by Press Release
February 4, 2019

The Holliston Newcomers Club has long been committed to giving back to our community.  Throughout the year, HNC organizes fundraising events which contribute to the Community Investment Grant Fund.   For the 2019 fund, these 2018 events included Princess & Superhero Party, Touch-A-Truck, The Great Pumpkin Trail, and Gingerbread House Decorating. 

The grant criteria defined here for 2019 has not been changed from what was used in 2018.  We will consider only those grant applications that are completed in full and will prioritize funding for those grant proposals that best fit the criteria established by the Community Investment Committee. Specifically, supporting groups that do not have significant income from fundraising and whose grant application demonstrates that the project would:

  1. Have a significant impact on the community
  2. Provide needed services/projects to the community at large
  3. Impact a large number of Holliston residents

Please note, grant proposals that seek to redistribute funds or that seeks funds strictly for operating costs will not be considered. All educational requests must be submitted through the designated school administrator, and no individual educator requests will be reviewed.

Also, please indicate whether or not it will be possible to complete the project within the next calendar year if your request is only partially funded.  Applicants are also asked to share what they see as the loss to the community if Newcomers does not fund their grant. All applicants will be notified of committee’s decision in April 2019.

The 2019 grant application is available on the Holliston Newcomers website HollistonNewcomers.org download the application here  The deadline for requests is February 26, 2019.  Requests received after the deadline will not be considered. 

Applications can be emailed to HNCCommunityInvestments@gmail.com or received at the address noted below.
