The foundation says most of the awards came from funds established to benefit specific nonprofits or specialized grant programs, such as the Wellborn program for environment, ecology and place-based education in the Upper Valley. Others were directed through donor advised funds to support the arts, education, and other programs. Students received more than $1 million in aid.
After the government, the foundation is the largest grantmaker to nonprofits in the state. It serves communities through New Hampshire, southeastern Maine and eastern Vermont.
