2020 Community Grant Recipients

Grant Criteria (in effect since 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 HNN does not fund their grant.
