Small Gifts

The Foundation Trust offers three types of small gifts:

National organizations: Small gifts to support routine operating expenses, memberships, annual appeals or special projects for nonprofits whose missions align with one or more of our priority tracks. Gifts range from $100 to $500.

National organizations may send unsolicited requests for support by postal mail only (P.O. Box 760995, Melrose, MA 02176). Requests may be sent at any time, but organizations should refrain from sending more than 2-3 solicitations per year.

 

New England organizations: Small gifts to support specific fundraising events or other time-sensitive contributions (e.g., sponsorship for a theater playbill) for nonprofit or municipal programs whose missions align with one or more of our priority tracks. Gifts range from $100 to $500.

Regional organizations may send requests for event-specific donations or other time-specific support at any time. All such requests should be sent via email to administrator@foundationtrust.org. Preference will be given to organizations located or providing services within one or more of our primary or secondary geographical catchment areas.

 

Greater Boston organizations: Small gifts to support routine operating expenses for nonprofit and municipal programs whose missions align with one or more of our priority tracks. Gifts range from $500 to $1,000.

Requests of this nature will be considered once per year during our annual grant review cycle. Interested applicant should submit a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) either by email or postal mail. Applicants should indicate that they are requesting a small gift versus a full grant award; this will expedite the overall review and application process. While some preference will be given to organizations located within or serving one or more of our geographical catchment communities for a given year, Greater Boston organizations from other communities are eligible to apply.
