Com­mu­nity Non-Prof­its’ Ben­e­fit From Til­lot­son Coat­i­cook Re­gional Fund’s Bounty

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Coat­i­cook

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.
