Holliston Newcomers & Neighbors 2020 Grant Application is Open
From Debbie Colburn
Holliston Newcomers & Neighbors has long been committed to giving back to our community. Throughout the year, HNN organizes fundraising events which contribute to the Community Investment Grant Fund. For the 2020 fund, these 2019 events included Princess & Superhero Party, Rock & Roll Bingo, Touch-A-Truck, The Great Pumpkin Trail Walk, and Gingerbread House Decorating.
The grant criteria has not changed from the previous few years. 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 HNN does not fund their grant.
The 2020 grant application is available on the Holliston Newcomers website HollistonNewcomers.org. Print copies are also available at the library.The deadline for requests is February 26, 2020. Requests received after the deadline will not be considered. All applicants will be notified of the committee’s decision in April 2020.
Applications can be emailed to HNNCommunityInvestments@gmail.com or received at the address noted below.
