Does the Foundation favor certain fields of interest (i.e. eduction, housing, human services, environment?)
Does it make grants for projects outside Lowell?
Are non-Lowell organizations encouraged to apply for Lowell-based projects?
Is there a preferred grant size?
There is no hard and fast rule regarding size of request or grant, but most grants fall within the range of $25,000-50,000.
Smaller requests tend to be denied, but may be considered under special circumstances.
Does the Foundation make multiple-year grants?
Do you support project, capital and operating costs?
We support project and capital costs, but, with the exception of startup grants, are reluctant to support general operations.
