Types of Awards
The Foundation Trust offers two types of small gifts.
1. 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 email@example.com. Preference will be given to organizations located or providing services within one or more of our geographical catchment areas.
2. 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 during the second half of the calendar year. Interested applicants should submit a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants should indicate that they are requesting a small gift rather than a partnership 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, organizations from other communities in the Greater Boston area are eligible to apply.
