Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation (BTCF) - James and Robert Hardman Fund
03/01/21 11:59 PM (EST)
Grants to Massachusetts and Vermont nonprofit organizations in eligible communities for programs that enhance the lives of local residents. Funding is intended to support initiatives in the areas of health, education, historic preservation, the environment, arts, culture, and human and social services. Priority will be given to activities that meet basic or emergency needs. Requests will be accepted from organizations serving North Adams, Clarksburg, and Florida in Massachusetts, and Stamford, Vermont.
Grants will be awarded to organizations that demonstrate the potential to expand or deepen their impact, or to those that are already achieving a significant impact. The Hardman Fund is particularly interested in initiatives that take a long term view of what is required to support people in difficult economic circumstances and to assist them in moving out of poverty and those that enrich the cultural and natural environment of the Fund area.
While the Hardman Fund typically supports a wide range of projects, the fund’s grantmaking committee has prioritized projects that meet basic or emergency needs—including food pantry, health insurance counseling, and victim assistance services—and organizations that are the sole providers of vital services for vulnerable populations in the region. Preference is given to collaboration between organizations, particularly those providing food to people in need.
