Funding is limited to organizations providing services in the greater Manchester area (Manchester, Bedford, Goffstown, Hooksett, Londonderry, Litchfield, Candia and Auburn).
The Mary Gale Foundation (“MGF”) is a private, grantmaking foundation that supports housing, health and other in-home services and programs for low-income women age 65 and older living in the Greater Manchester area. The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation accepts applications on behalf of the MGF, which has established a donor advised fund with the Foundation to support its grantmaking. This grantmaking program is open to nonprofit organizations.
If you are looking for funds to meet emergency or safety needs of an individual low-income senior woman, the Mary Gale Flex Fund, a project funded by the Mary Gale Foundation and administered by Easter Seals, may be of help. Contact them at MaryGaleFlexFund@eastersealsnh.org or 603-621-3485.
