Community Non-Profits’ Benefit From Tillotson Coaticook Regional Fund’s Bounty
Showa Best Glove of Coaticook was the venue for a celebration of the Tillotson Coaticook Regional Fund’s sixth granting event: 20 non-profit organizations shared $56,200.
Two dozen recipients were welcomed by Fund executives Michael Everett and James Crook to discuss the Fund’s mission of serving the organizations that strive for a better life and more opportunities in the border communities. “In this third year of operations, the Tillotson Coaticook Regional Fund has distributed over $350 000,” said M. Everett. “Giving back to the community in such a significant way could not happen without from the hard work of Best Glove employees and our other partners, the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and the MRC Coaticook.”
Tillotson Coaticook Regional Fund is focussed on helping nonprofits that serve Coaticook and surrounding communities including Stanstead, Ayer’s Cliff, North Hatley, Lennoxville and East Hereford.
Concluded Mr. Everett, “It’s going to be a short winter, so we advise you to start thinking of a program that will make a difference in the community.”
The next competition deadline will be in the spring of 2015. If you need seed money to obtain Government grants, Tillotson may be able to help.
