Grants to Massachusetts nonprofit organizations for capital expenses. Funding is intended for organizations with a broad range of interests. Funding is also intended to benefit clear community needs and a large region or number of residents.

Organizations should operate in the areas of historic preservation, land conservation, human and animal medicine, visual arts, and social welfare. Funding is intended for capital purchases and capital projects. The Board favors capital projects and purchases when the need is relevant to the community served, and where a large area or number of people will benefit.
